About Programme

For all programmes, the medium of instruction is English.

When the de-regulation blueprint of the Indian oil industry was announced in 1997, the world took note of the enormous potential that India offered in terms of business. From a controlled field of business to one where petrol and its products have been branded and are being positioned to attract the maximum number of consumers, the petroleum industry has come a long way.

But then the larger question is about getting adequate number of qualified professionals to harness fossil fuels, an invaluable natural resource. From the old, small petrol pumps to the service stations with state-of-the-art technology, dealing in Petrol, Diesel, Compressed Natural Gas(CNG), and Liquefied Petroleum Gas(LPG) for Automobiles, and other domestic industrial applications, the industry is primed for unprecedented opportunities. Moreover, LPG and CNG are the promising energy fuels for the future and are finding their utility in an increasing number of fuel-based applications. In a nutshell, the entire Oil & Gas sector is poised for promising growth with an entirely unique approach.


4 Year B.Tech. Programme
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 in the application of these knowledge base to exploration, drilling, production, reservoir engineering, pipeline engineering refinery operations, LNG value chain, petrochemicals and gas processing. Total intake is 120 students.

Students in the petroleum engineering program will be taken on a holistic journey of the entire value chain starting from exploration of hydrocarbons to the supply of petroleum products to end users. Keeping this in mind the bifurcation of Upstream and Downstream is carried out at the end of 2nd Year. Effective from 2016-17 academic year, the course structure similar to the course of the UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA (OU) has been introduced for first 7 semesters. There will be credit exchange program in which PDEU students can go to the UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA (OU) for one semester and earn credit which will be counted as their academic performance for that semester.

The major subjects covered in the curriculum of PETROLEUM UPSTREAM are Reservoir Engineering, Operation and Production Engineering, Drilling and Well Completion, Enhanced Oil Recovery etc. The major subjects covered in the curriculum of PETROLEUM DOWNSTREAM are Processing, Marketing and distribution of crude oil and natural gas& its by-products, Refining of petroleum crude, LNG value chain, Pipeline engineering etc.

B.Tech Petrochemical Engineeing
Petrochemicals provide the foundation for manufacturing industries and more significantly form a major part of our daily lives. Indian petrochemical sector has come a long way with global sized plants not only meeting the local demands but also exporting to global markets.

Core areas of B.Tech Petrochemical Engineering Includes Olefin and Aromatic Production, Processing of Petrochemicals, Gas Processing Technologies, Artificial Intelligence in Petrochemical Industry, Transportation and Marketing.
