B. Tech. (Applied Petroleum Engineering – Gas Stream) - Gas Processing

DETAILS

B. Tech. Applied Petroleum Engineering Gas with Specialization in Gas Processing is a new specialization launched in August 2021 which will cover natural gas exploration, production and processing. Any natural gas explored requires processing before they can be of any commercial value. Gas Processing course enables students to be gas processing industry ready. The students will study courses like Natural gas conditioning and processing, Automation in gas industries, Safety in gas industries, Gas trading etc. The students will also be provided training in software like Petrel E&P, CMG, ASPEN Plus, PIPESIM, SIMSCI PIPEPHASE etc. The graduated students will be industry ready for the companies like Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Petronet LNG, Shell, Halliburton, Adani gas, Reliance, Torrent gas etc.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.

Graduates will develop a sound mathematical and scientific foundation to provide Engineering solutions in Gas Production, Processing, and Distribution areas.

Graduates will have successful careers in leading Oil and Gas industries.

Graduates will interact with leading researchers and academicians of Oil and Gas areas, to participate in lifelong learning and R&D

Graduates will acquire lateral thinking and leadership skills to become industry leaders.

Graduates will contribute to the welfare of the society /environment by taking professionally responsible decisions
