About Research

School of Petroleum Technology(SPT) was established in the year 2007 to create a talent pool of well trained engineers for the oil & gas sector.

As a centre of excellence, SPT intends to expand the opportunities for students and professionals to develop intellectual domain specific knowledge and leadership skills to compete in the global arena. This objective is being addressed through a number of specialised and well planned undergraduate and post graduate energy and technology education programs and intensive research initiatives.

SPT offers specialised streams of Upstream and Downstream programs in keeping with the the new demands of the Indian Petroleum Sector. The Pedagogy has been closely aligned with the technical requirements of the industry and is focused on producing sound engineering talent ready for the oil and gas indstry
