The Department of Petrochemical Engineering Department at the
Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University
was established in the year 2008 and Petroleum Engineering
in the year 2009 and Pipeline Engineering(PG) Course in the year 2014 to make its mark in the Oil and Gas Industries in the country. Subsequent developments, under the able guidance of a series of distinguished educators, renowned personalities from oil and gas industries and scientists, have led the department to the forefront of research and teaching in petroleum and Petrochemical engineering. Since commencement, the Dept. has produced more than 500 undergraduate (B.Tech) students and about 40 post graduate students which includes M.Tech. The department has made its mark in the oil and gas industries in the country and presently the ex-students are occupying very Prestigious position in different government, public sector undertakings and private organization.

The undergraduate course of this Department is at par with any such courses offered by universities internationally and it deals mainly the upstream and down streams operations of oil and gas industry, i.e. Drilling, Production, Transportation and Reservoir Engg.
The unique feature of the course is that the theory classes are supplemented by a compulsory practical training in the oil fields in the summer of every year. Thus the products coming out from the Department are tailor-made to suit the requirement of the industry. The recent trend towards use of computers have also made an impact towards simulation study in various oil and gas operations.
