Petroleum Engineering is one of the most popular engineering domains on offer in India today. The lucrative and rewarding job opportunities that it offers, especially in the oil & gas sector, has made Petroleum Engineering an excellent career choice. Broadly speaking, the domain of Petroleum engineering deals with the study, exploration, extraction and distribution of oil and natural gas reserves available on the earth. However, we live in times of energy crisis and, therefore, demand of trained and qualified petroleum engineers, is on the rise. Today, the domain of petroleum engineering touches upon the variety of topics and subjects like economics, geology, geochemistry, geophysics, seismology, gas production and oil processing and others.

Although considered to be a niche domain, Petroleum Engineering is one of the most rewarding career choices for engineering students. Due to the relatively restricted employment and research opportunities, not many institutes offer full-fledged academic programmes for Petroleum Engineering. This makes the challenge of picking the right Petroleum Engineering institute a great ask from students interested in this subject. However, a handful of engineering institutes do offer credible academic programmes in Petroleum Engineering. To help students pick the right institute, we have compiled a guide with the list of top petroleum engineering colleges in India with relevant information like courses offered and entrance examination.
