An Institute of National Importance under the Act of Parliament

About the Department

The oil and gas sectors in India require skilled Mechanical Engineering graduates with significant expertise in these fields to improve existing processes and innovate novel efficient processes to utilize these precious resources in a sustainable way. Energy demand in India is growing exponentially and utilization of renewable energy sources for power generation and other processes have been encouraged by the Government of India to tackle this demand in a sustainable way. The renewable energy industry has seen impressive, global growth at national and international level over the last decade, and mechanical engineers have played a major role in enabling the world’s transition to clean energy and other sustainable practices. Mechanical engineers have implemented sustainable practices in oil & gas sectors and also have actively involved in development of various solar fields, geothermal power stations, wind farms, hydro power stations, steam and gas turbine based power stations throughout India. Apart from these Mechanical Engineers have a huge role to play in design and development of efficient process equipment and machinery in conventional oil and gas industries.
