The Training and Placement Cell (T&P Cell)facilitates the process of placements for graduates and post-graduate students at the University, besides collaborating with prominent organizations in setting up of internship and training program of students. The placement policies and other related activities are handled by Training & Placement Cell, assisted by Professor In-charge and students’ Placement Committee.  Students Committee is closely co-opted in implementing these policy decisions. The process of coordination with recruiters is handled by the T&P Cell. The companies are encouraged to communicate with Manager-Training & Placement for initial discussions and subsequent communication.

Job offers, dates of interviews, selection of candidates etc. are announced through the Training & Placement Office.

The T&P Cell office is well equipped to support all placement procedures including Pre-Placement Talk, interviews and group discussions.

Facilities available at T&P Cell:

  • Auditorium and lecture theaters for PPT.
  • Well equipped discussion rooms for interviews and group discussions.
  • IT support for placement activities.

B.Tech. Course Curriculum - 2010

The 4 Year B.Tech Programme in Petroleum Engineering is based on integrated approach of relevant basic sciences and engineering and Oil & Gas industry technology operations and emphasis on the application of these knowledge base to exploration, drilling, production, reservoir engineering, Refinery Operations, City Gas Distribution, Pipeline Operations, etc.

The bifurcation of School of Petroleum Technology into specialized streams of Upstream and Downstream was done in keeping up with the new demands of Indian Oil and Gas sector. The Course Curriculum is bifurcated in to 2 Major streams.

All the students have common subjects in Semester I , II, III & IV, in which students get basic fundamental knowledge of both the streams.

Students have to opt for their choice of stream after 2nd Year. Students learn specialized subjects as per their selected stream.
