B.Tech. Applied Petroleum Engineering - Gas Engineering Informatics

Details

The B.Tech. program in Applied Petroleum Engineering takes a comprehensive/holistic approach to understanding the fundamentals of the oil and gas industry and applying that knowledge to various petroleum operations. The program is well-versed in the petroleum industry's conventional, unconventional, and energy transition aspects. Future energy scenarios and industry demand are taken into consideration when incorporating subjects like Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Analytics in the petroleum industry and energy storage along with conventional subjects like Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Production Engineering, Pipeline Engineering, Natural Gas Engineering, 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.
