UNIVERSITY OF PETROLEUM AND ENERGY STUDIES
Every year, UPES welcomes a fresh batch of some of the country’s finest young women and men to its scenic campuses in Dehradun. These individuals leave richer than just the specialized degrees they attain. The UPES experience is as much outside the classroom as within it. Here you are encouraged to do what you love and create a foundation for lasting success in life. And for those who are inspired to follow their dreams, the world beckons. But before you can pursue your passion, you need to find it. Discover passion, discover yourself, at UPES.
To ignite and inspire young minds, UPES has a team of faculty, which hail from some of the best academic institutions in India (IITs, IIMs, etc.) and the world. Faculty members also bring to the table wealth of world-class, hands-on experience from working in leading private and government organizations in the EIT sectors. The culture of initiative and innovation is the foundation of pedagogy at UPES. UPES faculty members are actively engaged in path-breaking academic & applied research projects, academic publishing, national & international conferences, and industry consultative assignments. This unique ‘Teach and Practice’ approach, and use of the most modern IT implements for dissemination of knowledge, ensure that students cover the stretch from the classroom to the corporate world successfully. To make this transition seamless for the students, UPES promotes continuous student-faculty interaction, focussed study tours/industry visits, summer internships, industry-based dissertations and innovative project work. The distinguished faculty lectures are supplemented by interactions with international professors and world-renowned domain experts. The emphasis is on ‘learning from the best’ to ‘strive to be the best’ and ‘prepare the best’ for the future.
