Petroleum engineer is involved throughout the oil and gas extraction process, from the drilling of exploratory wells to the determination of safest and most economical methods for petroleum recovery. The four years bachelor degree course in petroleum engineering is open to students who have passed plus two or equivalent with physics, chemistry and maths. The admission to the course is on the basis joint engineering entrance test. The programmes covers courses related to various components in petroleum industry including petroleum exploration, reservoir engineering , production engineering, well engineering , drilling engineering , environment engineering and refining technology. Elective subjects like unconventional hydrocarbon resources, well control, production enhancement and optimization , carbon management ,petroleumeconomics ,transportof oil and gas are introduced in thecurriculumof final year of petroleumengineering.

To puruse a career as petroleum engineer one needs to have scientific bent of mind, excellent numerical ability, analytic thinking, inquisitive nature , interest in technological developments and excellent verbal as well as written communication skills.

Typically, a petroleum engineering gaduate is given the job to discover the sources of oil and examine the same. Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is part of the job of a petroleum engineer. Petroleum engineers have global career and are hired by global oil companies.


The Petroleum Engineering is divided into 2 parts:
1. Upstream Sector:
Consists of activities like exploration, production and exploitation of oil and natural gases. After gaining a qualification in petroleum engineering, the engineers work in the exploration and production activities of petroleum and other related products. Using the latest drilling tecnhology anf geophysics for the exploration of oil reservoirs, they exploit the same for maimum output.

2. Downstream Sector:
consist activities such as the refining, marketing and distributing of petroleum products. Prodution is not the only work carried out in a patroleum company and the job of petroleum engineer does not get over as the oil is produced, rather, i starts at this stage. Refining process is crucial for an oil product as then only it can be used. Marketing and distributng department may require a petroleum engineer to have some management degree.

2. One must also pass qualifiying entrance exam of particular institute or AIEEE, or JEE (Joint Entrance Exam) conducted by IIT's which will be an added advantage for admission to top institutes.

For pursuing master's i.e. MTech Degree in petoleum enginering:
1. One must complete BTech or BE in Chemical or Petroleum Engineering.
2. Those who have completed MSc in Chemistry are also eligible for MTech in Petroleum Engineering.


Courses in Petoleum Engineering:
Students interested in pursuing courses in petroleum engineering can do the following:
1. BE in Petroleum Engineering
2. BTech in Applied Petroleum Engineering
3. BTech in Petrochemical Engineering
4. BTech in Petroleum Engineering
5. BTech in Petroleum Refining and Petrochemical Engineering
6. BTech in Petroleum Refining engineering
7. BTech in Petroleum Reservoir and Production Engineering
8. ME in Petroleum Engineering
9. MTech in Petroleum Engineering
10. MTech in Petroleum Exploration
11. MTech in Petroleum Refinery Engineering.
12. MTech in Petroleum Refining and Petrochemical Engineering
