B.Tech Petro Chemical Engineering

School of Engineering & Technology

B.Tech Chemical Engineering is a specialized branch of Chemical Engineering that deals with the production and refining of petroleum, natural gases, and crude oils. The course takes up four years for completion or in some cases three and half years, depending on the internship.

There is a rising demand for petroleum engineers, at all levels, from both the public and private sector companies and organizations. This clearly shows the innumerable career opportunities in the field of petroleum engineering. The field is always in short supply of qualified entry-level professionals, making it one of the most reliable fields of engineering.
