Deysarkar Centre of Excellence in Petroleum Engineering (DCEPE), Kharagpur

Deysarkar Centre of Excellence in Petroleum Engineering aims at launching both academic and research programs needed to produce future game changers and leaders in energy sector in the 21st century through Industry-Academia Synergy and create a platform for innovation and training that can be role model petroleum engineering and academic programs. Centre aims at launching innovative programmes employing a "convergence" approach that advocates the integration of knowledge, tools and scientific thinking from multiple fields. The centre offers dual degree B. Tech. (Mechanical/Chemical/Mining), M. Tech. (Petroleum engineering, 05 years)/M.Sc. (Geology-Geophysics)-M.Tech., (Petroleum engineering, 06 years) programs. The programs have industry-immersive internship starting at the early years and will build up in to a senior capstone experience and master's theses that are relevant to the sponsoring company. A major feature of the program will be to infuse transdisciplinarity between engineering and sustainable development, nurtured through in-depth courses/projects with humanities-law and management
