B. Tech

Programme Details

B. Tech (Petroleum Engineering)

Engineering is the profession in which knowledge of mathematics and natural sciences is used to the benefit of mankind. Engineers develop solutions to the problems of society within the constraints of economy and environment. Their primary job function includes activities such as design, analysis, manufacturing, research, sales, management, consulting and many more. New generation engineers are required to cope up with rapid changes in both, domain knowledge and nature of problems to be solved. Engineering profession is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary; making demands on knowledge, skills as well as personality. Our B. Tech Programme is based on the three cardinal principles: providing social context to education, giving maximum choice to the student to choose a career path and encouraging active learning.

Why to Choose?

Petroleum engineers are recruited in national and private oil and gas companies, contractor and service companies, engineering consulting firms, government agencies, oil field services, and equipment suppliers. With growing use of specialized software in Petroleum Industry, engineers have opportunity to work in software industry as well.

Programme Objectives

Petroleum engineering programme under MIT-WPU is a 4 year 12 semester choice based credit system pattern programme with industry training to make industry ready engineer. The Petroleum Engineering programme will prepare graduates to be proficient in:
  1. Mathematics through differential equations.
  2. Probability and statistics.
  3. Fluid mechanics, strength of materials, and thermodynamics.
  4. Develop competency in design and analysis of well systems and procedures for drilling and completing wells.
  5. Characterization and evaluation of subsurface geological formations and their resources using geo scientific and engineering methods.
  6. Design and analysis of systems for producing, injecting, and handling fluids.
  7. Application of reservoir engineering principles and practices for optimizing resource development and management.
  8. The use of project economics and resource valuation methods for design and decision making under conditions of risk and uncertainty.

Salient Features

  • Wide choice of elective subjects to meet individual professional goals
  • One semester industrial internship for all students as a part of curriculum
  • Emphasis on social context to engineering education
  • National as well as international exposure to enhance students’ vision and enrich personality
  • Experiential learning in association with industry
  • Additional inputs from national and international experts
  • Industry internship certificate

In this Programme, You will learn….

The petroleum engineering students will provide a broad education spectrum from exploration of hydrocarbons to refining and transportation of oil and gas. This will involve understanding of knowledge of pure and applied sciences along with different engineering clusters related to petroleum industry. They are given exposure to learn the safest and most efficient methods of bringing hydrocarbon resources to the surface. At MIT-WPU, we develop Petroleum Engineers with sound human values and sense of world citizenship. Our objective is to offer students with real life industrial exposure. National and international study tours will provide global exposure to our students. Our program includes tracks from exploration, drilling engineering, production engineering, reservoir engineering, refining and transport of oil and gas. The curriculum is imparted with active learning methods like problem based learning (PBL), experiential learning and collaborative learning. Choice based course selection, projects and electives across disciplines offer much needed inter-disciplinary approach to budding petroleum engineers. Equipped with highly experienced faculty and strong industry academia connect.

How will this Programme be taught?

First year of engineering will provide foundation of basic and engineering sciences including living systems. Since design is pivotal to the engineering profession, students in first year are given perception of design thinking. Social internship in the first year will give realization to the students about problems faced by community. This is expected to sow the seeds of socially oriented innovation in the student’s mind. Second year courses are designed to provide strong foundation in engineering sciences from the chosen disciplines. Summer internship at the end of second year will involve guided study tour. The tour will expose the students to our diverse culture, technology achievements and challenges. Third and fourth years will include subjects belonging to the chosen track in his/her own trade. International study tour of four weeks will offer global exposure whereas industry internship in the final year will offer real life industry experience. Project based learning in the last two trimesters will inculcate problem solving skills, team spirit, professional ethics and self-learning experience.
