Petroleum Engineering Department has started its functioning from the Academic Year 2009-10. Petroleum engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. Exploration and Production are deemed to fall within the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry. Petroleum Engineering is a combination of innovation, exploration and expansion. This program trains students in petroleum engineering and focuses primarily on exploration and production of oil and gas. This stream provides a good knowledge of many other related disciplines such as geophysics, petroleum geology, drilling, economics, reservoir simulation, reservoir engineering and gas facilities engineering.
