Petroleum Engineering

The Department of Petroleum Engineering in Presidency University, Bengaluru was established in 2015 to create its mark in Oil and Gas industries in India and abroad. Therefore, the department is focused on developing advanced Teaching – Learning, and Research facilities which in turn enable the students to learn modern technologies, create innovative technologies, and apply them for solving problems specifically related to Petroleum Exploration, Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, and Production and Surface Facility Design, etc. The B.Tech. Petroleum Engineering Program Curriculum is covering courses from Upstream, Midstream and Downstream areas of petroleum industry.

The B.Tech. Program focuses primarily on Exploration and Production (E&P), i.e., maximum emphasis given on up-stream operations of Oil and Gas industry like Drilling Technology, Production Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Well Completion and Testing, Enhanced Oil Recovery Techniques, etc. Therefore, these courses will serve both national and global development needs.

Some Midstream and Downstream related courses like Pipeline Engineering, Process Engineering Calculations, Petroleum Refinery and Petrochemicals, Transport Phenomena, Polymer Technology, etc. are also incorporated in the curriculum to encourage interested students towards Downstream industry. Therefore, these courses will serve local, national and global development needs.

Courses related to Unconventional Energy Recourses like Coal Bed Methane, Shale Gas and Gas Hydrate etc. are also included in the curriculum. These courses are considered as the future trend of Oil and Gas industry. Therefore, these courses will serve local, national and global development needs. Considering the present demand of the Oil and Gas industry, Petroleum Data Analytics is incorporated as the non-credited course where seminars and workshops will be organized time-to-time.

Greatest part of the program is that the theory lectures are supplemented by laboratory experiments. The laboratories, namely ‘Petroleum Geology Lab’, ‘Process Dynamic Control Lab’, ‘Heat and Mass Transfer Lab’, ‘Drilling Fluids and Cements Lab’ ‘Reservoir Engineering Lab’, ‘Petroleum Testing Lab’, Fluid Mechanics Lab’, ‘Reservoir Simulation and Modelling Lab’ and ‘Oil and Gas Processing Plant Design Lab’, are equipped with sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment and software. The students completing graduation in B.Tech. Petroleum Engineering are expected serve primarily in the Up-stream areas of oil and gas industry.
