B.Tech Petroleum Engineering

Programme Overview

The B.Tech Petroleum Engineering programme at MIT-WPU is centred on both upstream engineering, focusing on the exploration, drilling, and extraction of petroleum and downstream engineering which deals with refining and processing the extracted petroleum into usable products. This programme adheres to the rigorous standards set by the Society of Petroleum Engineers, positioning MIT-WPU as a competitive force among the world's leading institutions. B.Tech Petroleum Engineering is the second oldest and the only petroleum programme in engineering colleges in Maharashtra. The curriculum covers commercial production, technological development, data analytics, subsea engineering, and more. Students gain practical experience through field visits, industrial training, and internships, developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Graduates emerge well-equipped for careers in national and international oil & gas companies, research organisations, and academia.
