Undergraduate Programs

B.Sc. Petroleum & Gas Engineering

The department offers a bachelor degree programme in Petroleum & Gas Engineering. The curriculum includes courses from different domains, including but not limited to, Production Engineering, Reservoir Engineering and Drilling Engineering. In addition to these core domains, strong support of basic sciences courses at different levels is also offered. Actual field data and related problems are included in the courses to develop field-oriented approach among the students, such as Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and Complex Engineering Problems (CEPs), with active and strong support from the industry. In order to complement theoretical learning, strong laboratory infrastructure is in place offering opportunities for students’ hands-on experience through Open-Ended Labs. The spread of the course contents is broad enough to groom the graduates for any major area of petroleum and gas engineering profession. Through strengthened collaboration and linkages with industry, students avail opportunities to visit oil and gas fields, transmission and storage stations and refineries, to familiarize them with the tasks and operations they have to undertake in their professional career. The department maintains a successful internship program as well, which serves to provide students with ample internship training opportunities. The department coordinates and arranges guest lectures/ workshops/ webinars by seasoned alumni/ industry professionals for enhanced grooming of students.
