M.Tech. (Petroleum Engineering)

Master of Technology in Petroleum Engineering

Duration: 2 Years
Level: Post Graduation
Type: Degree
Eligibility: B.Tech. with GATE

M.Tech. Petroleum Engineering or Master of Technology in Petroleum Engineering is a postgraduate Petroleum Engineering course. Course is designed to train professionals in the work-flow concepts now prevailing in the oil and gas industries, and to produce engineers that are fully prepared to work effectively in multi-disciplinary teams. A program that prepares individuals to apply mathematical and scientific principles to the design, development and operational evaluation of systems for locating, extracting, processing and refining crude petroleum and natural gas, including prospecting instruments and equipment, mining and drilling systems, processing and refining systems and facilities, storage facilities, transportation systems, and related environmental and safety systems. Courses in petroleum engineering deal with drilling, formation evaluation, production, reservoir engineering, computer simulation and enhanced oil recovery. Course deals with all aspects of modelling the reservoir, studying fluid movement, and maximizing oil and gas recovery. Production is primarily the work of removing crude oil, gas, and water from the reservoir to the surface and separating and treating each fluid.
