The B. Tech. Applied Petroleum Engineering spl. in Gas (APEG) is a unique program which allows the students to have the feel of both the upstream – natural gas exploration and production & downstream - natural gas processing and distribution. The students understand the concepts of how natural gas reserves are explored, extracted, processed and then distributed. Students study courses like Enhanced oil recovery, Gasification & Gas to Liquid Technology, liquefied natural gas, city gas distribution etc., with hands-on experience using software like PIPESIM, SIMSCI PIPEPHASE and MATLAB. The graduate students have a huge scope in companies like Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Petronet LNG, Shell, Halliburton, Adani gas, Reliance, etc

Vision

To be a Department of this Institution of global standing for developing professionally competent talent contributing to nation building in the Chemical, Gas and Petrochemical Sector.

Mission

  • Training competent Engineers for the Chemical, Gas and Petrochemical sector.
  • Develop and maintain state-of-the-art infrastructure and research facilities for the faculty and students to create, apply, and disseminate knowledge.
  • To take on industry-relevant R&D activity by faculty and students for continuous improvement in academics and allied areas.
  • To develop students who shall be ethical in behaviour both in professional as well as in personal life.
  • To create a culture where faculty and students give due consideration to the environment and social issues while solving a problem.

Academic Framework

The foundation of higher learning at UPES since its inception has been to explore and promote areas of learning that are innovative and future focused. This has led to constant evolution in facilitating creative and collaborative learning engagements for students through realignment of curriculum and exploration of virtual tools, and open-source courseware; thereby creating borderless learning and access to limitless information.

The new curriculum framework at UPES, ABLE (Academic Blueprint for Learning Excellence) is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. The learning is segmented into core subject studies, core specialism studies, minors/exploratory subjects, and signature and life skills learning. The latter three are offered by the newly-instituted School for Life.

SFL (School for Life) is an intrinsic part of the composite UPES student experience and facilitates learning and education that is a balance between what students want, and what is needed of them as future global citizens and leaders of tomorrow. With courses designed to equip students with lifelong learning skills, a focus on a wide range of contemporary issues, and a mandatory social and professional internship experience that is unique, UPES believes in igniting to inspire the best version within an individual to better the world.

  • 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
  • Design and operate various units of modern natural gas production, processing and distribution 
  • Solve practical natural gas engineering problems using fluid flow, heat and mass transfer, reaction kinetics, thermodynamics, economics and safety 
The B. Tech program in Applied Petroleum Engineering Spl in Gas prepares the students to be suitable for various roles in the industry as follows

  • Reservoir Engineer
