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.

DETAILS

  1. Graduates will develop a sound mathematical and scientific foundation to provide Engineering solutions in Chemical/ Petrochemical areas.
  2. Graduates will have successful careers in leading Chemical/Petrochemical industries.
  3. Graduates will interact with leading researchers and academicians of Chemical/ Petrochemical areas, to participate in lifelong learning and R&D.
  4. Graduates will acquire lateral thinking and leadership skills to become industry leaders.
