B.Tech. in Petroleum Engineering


Description

Preparing innovative minds of the future

This group concerns itself with the generation, extraction, distribution and utilization of energy as well as the environmental impact of various types of energy. The core is built around Petrochemical & geological sources of energy, covering the extraction, storage refinement and utilization of these forms This aims at providing a basic grounding in Petroleum products, coal and natural gas. The group intends to design a middle layer of courses in energy measurement, efficiencies, wastage and energy audits. The core has an outer layer of renewable energies like solar, wind, hydro and fuel cell based energy generation. The electives are end use based! Thus there are sets of electives on energy audits, Oil and gas exploration and extraction, refining, solar energy, wind energy, Hydro energy. At the other end there are electives on energy audits, measurement, building design for energy efficiency and energy efficient transportation.

Experimentation includes scaled model implementation, energy audits of the University Kitchens and several lab based experiments which keep the student "hands on". Outcome: a student granted a major by this group will be able to assess energy needs, conduct audits and be able to work in Petrochemical as well as alternatives energy generation and T&D areas having had a basic exposure to these areas and based on the electives taken by him.
