Petrochemical Engineering is a branch of Chemical Engineering which manages operations engaged with crude oil or refining petroleum by the utilization of advanced technology. The course additionally incorporates extraction of crude oil acquired from the center of earth. Students will learn about the techniques and mechanisms associated with exercises like exploitation of oil or natural gases, exploration, and production.
After the completion of undergraduate and postgraduate projects in petroleum engineering, students can work in work profiles like drilling engineers, production engineers, petroleum geologists and production engineers.
- 10+2 qualification is must in Science stream with Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and high percentage of aggregate.
- Those who are interested in doing M.Tech can do Petrochemical, Petroleum, Mechanical or Chemical Engineering. And for Non Petroleum Engineering graduates they have to undergo some introductory papers.
- There is a lot of demand for petrochemical engineers in private sector companies, and even in public sectors.
- These petroleum engineers have to get involved in the exploration and production of gas and oil. Even they work with geo-scientists and other departments.
