Energy and energy infrastructure are critical to any economy for development and sustainability. India has recognised this fact and has embarked upon a comprehensive strategy to address the concerns of energy security of India. The need for a resource center was anticipated to keep pace with the fast developing and competitive energy industry, to plan for the future and to continuously build requisite intellectual capital and human resource capability.
We, at the School of Petroleum Technology (SPT), envisaged the increasing needs for well-trained Engineeres suited for this sector, and started the B.Tech. programme with a focus on the Oil & Gas sector.
School of Petroleum Technology has been set up under Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) as a centre of excellence to develop human resources to cater to the petroleum and allied energy sectors, improve knowledge base of technologists and provide a competitive edge to professionals in the global arena. It has been promoted with the initiative of Gujarat State Petroleum Corporation Ltd. (GSPC) a Gujarat government undertaking, which is a leader in the energy sector.
