School of Petroleum Technology

Dr. R. K. Vij

School of Petroleum Technology (SPT) came into existence in 2007. The vision with which the school was started was to impart knowledge to the young minds and develop capable resources to be offered to the oil and gas industry in the form of skilled manpower.

SPT is a research oriented institute and we also believe in strong industry-academia connect. Sitting on the Director’s chair, I try to motivate engineers to develop holistically. Along with a dedicated team of faculty members and staff, we are developing the school and moving towards excellence with each step we take.

SPT has a good alumni base in Oil and Gas Industry. I feel proud to say that within a short span of time, SPT has built a good reputation with the industry and our placement is reflecting the same.

The Petroleum Engineering program offered at SPT covers the entire value chain from the exploration of hydrocarbon till the supply of petroleum products to end users. Keeping this in mind SPT offers B.Tech degree in Petroleum Engineering with majors in Upstream and Downstream. The school also offers Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Petroleum Engineering. Our academic programs are amongst the best in the country. The school provides an optimum mix of theory and practical, with strong emphasis on industrial applications. The program gives a lot of importance to practical experience for which extensive interaction with industry is built into the curriculum.

I welcome all the young minds and budding engineers to join the SPT family and work towards excellence.
