Graduate Program

The great demand from the national petroleum sector and need to develop indigenous technology motivated for the initiation of postgraduate programme in Petroleum & Gas Engineering. The Department is offering master's degree programme in Petroleum & Gas Engineering since 1999 and plans to start the Ph. D. in Petroleum Engineering as well.
The Master in Petroleum & Gas Engineering is a two-year part time programme. Besides completion of the required courses, the students have to carry out comprehensive research projects related to the practical industrial problems. These projects strengthen the technology support for the industry.
The department has a highly qualified faculty. In addition to the regular faculty, the department has a number of prominent petroleum engineers on its list of experts who can be invited as visiting teachers, research advisors and examiners. The research interests of the faculty include Reservoir Engineering, Production Engineering, Drilling Engineering, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Reservoir Simulation, Well Testing and Well Log Interpretation.
The department has the facility of well equipped laboratories and a well stocked library. The students are also encouraged to use computer in their projects and class assignments.
