This academic program is aimed at the industrial needs of specialized competency and comparative lack of opportunities for such courses in Indian technical institutions. The program will also facilitate the need for competent manpower for the global petroleum exploration and production industry. The program will also minimize the existing gap of higher education and academic research in the field of oil and gas engineering in India through appropriate faculty training and induction of young engineers into quality research.
The program would also give exposure to global industrial practices and work environments in the form of internships of adequate duration. Towards this attempt would be made to involve national industry such as: ONGC, OIL, HPCL, Selan Oil Exploration, GSPC etc., to give them the edge to be readily deployable. To its credit the department, considered to be one of the strongest in the neighbourhood, has provided 100% ‘on-the-job exposure’.
