About the Department

Petroleum engineering is one of the primary branches of engineering profession, which mainly focuses the upstream side of the crude oil. it includes geological survey, exploration, exploitation, reservoir engineering, drilling, well logging, well completion, well testing, well simulation and modeling, offshore and onshore engineering, production engineering, Enhanced oil recovery etc..
Oil output is forecast to continue to rise over the next few years, although it is affected by economic conditions. There has also been a reduction in the number of significant new oilfield discoveries and an increased cost of extracting the remaining oil from established fields, which adds pressures to the industry.
Career development opportunities are promising, as many companies are recruiting an increasing amount of new graduate engineers with the aim of promoting those who show the most potential.
The oil and gas industries have rich global presence dominated by numerous national and multinational companies. Varieties of opportunities and rewarding careers are in existence for Petroleum Engineering Graduates in the fields of oil and gas exploration, reservoir modeling and management, drilling and production operations and marketing of oil and gas.
The Petroleum engineers are imparted knowledge on areas like geophysics, petroleum geology, formation evaluation (well logging), drilling, reservoir simulation, reservoir engineering, artificial lift systems, completions, and oil and gas facilities engineering enhanced oil recovery, onshore / offshore engineering.
Petroleum engineers locate, recover and maintain the world's oil and gas supplies. They are the innovators who use cutting-edge technology to create new methods of discovering and drilling for oil.
The breadth and depth of petroleum engineering is unique and is multi disciplinary. The same is designed to prepare each graduate for a successful career with both technical competence and managerial ability.
Petroleum engineering has a wide openings in National and Multinational oil & Gas Drilling and production companies like ONGC, OIL, Reliance,Essor oil, Cairn Energy, Shell etc and Services provided like Halliburton, Petrofac Engineering services etc, with company's in US,Malaysia,Uk,Norway,Iraq, Northern Gulf, Saudi Arabia, Southern Gulf and India.


To create world class leaders of petroleum engineers and to manage the petroleum industry to serve the global petroleum industry needs.


A great place for right education...
