BTech Petroleum Engineering

  • About Program

    The BTech Petroleum Engineering program as taught at the DIT University has the right blend of advanced technology, management, applied science and humanities. The program aims to provide advanced teaching to the students to enable them to create and apply innovative technologies in upstream operations in the petroleum industry like drilling, production and reservoir engineering and downstream operation like refining of crude oil and processing of petrochemicals & efficiently utilize their knowledge and skills to find solutions of any industry related problem. The program has a strong E-learning component offering a sufficient range of electives delivered by experts and eminent academicians of our University. The course is designed for anyone with a passion for exploring innovative things in engineering & technology and is looking for a potential future professional career in the oil and gas sector. It is aimed at any student who wishes to develop his/her skills in engineering fields mainly in upstream (production engineering, reservoir engineering, drilling technology, offshore oil and gas operations), midstream (oil and gas transportation) and downstream (petroleum refining and petrochemicals). A candidate should have a strong background in Mathematics and different sciences such as Chemistry and Physics.
