VC's Message

Welcome to University of Petroleum & Energy Studies!

UPES has become a movement to transform lives of youngsters. While, in the initial years this was done through Petroleum & Energy domains courses, over the years we have added Infrastructure, Transportation, IT, Design, Planning and Policy. Today UPES is the nation builders’ University.

Ownership defines the UPES culture, each one of us at the university show ownership of the processes and systems. Our focus has always been ‘the students’. We are a trustworthy destination for people aspiring for an innovative career. We have transformed the lives of 10000+ students who are contributing to the prosperity of our nation and benefiting society at large.

We have a unique approach to bringing industry to academics through participation in curriculum development, curriculum delivery, industry internships, placement offers, faculty training, add-on co-curricular exposures, advice on current and future industry scenarios and even co-ownership of programs in several cases.

Our pedagogy has also seen transformation over the years with considerable technological assistance. The generation Z which thrives in the virtual world, needs that the academic inputs be also made available through e-route. We have started blending face to face delivery with e-delivery. This is transforming the way our youngsters learn. The life on campus has also become easy through digitization and things from fee payment, grievance redressal, and service requirements, attendance recording, academic progress reports have all become available at the click of the mouse. Our belief in collaboration and outcome orientation combined with continuous innovation has yielded rich dividends in terms of the huge network of universities, internationalization of experience on campus as well as international experiences for our students, abroad.

Our focus on research has created an environment of continuous learning and support for the inquisitive minds. The patents, publications and funded projects in research centers speak for the commitment of the university towards bringing the best to our students and faculty.

UPES is marching towards high quality education to a greater number of students as we grow. This nation builders’ university is today a movement of global standing. It would be my privilege to welcome prospective faculty as well as students to join us and be a part of this movement to make our nation prosperous.
