About University

Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) has been established by GERMI as a Private University through the State Act enacted on 4th April, 2007. The University offers programs to address the need for trained human resources in the domains of Science, Technology, Management and Humanities. It intends to broaden the opportunities for students and professionals to develop core subject knowledge which are duly complemented by leadership training interventions, thereby helping the students to make a mark in the global arena. This objective is being further addressed through a number of specialized and well-planned undergraduate, post-graduate and doctoral programs as well as intensive research projects.

PDPU offers multiple courses ranging from engineering, arts and management along with maximum exposure and opportunities to its students through various national and International exchange programs with Best Universities worldwide. For development of its faculties and staff the University endeavors for various Joint Exchange and Research programs.


About School of Technology

The school emphasizes on sound theoretical and practical knowledge of the chosen engineering discipline along with a broad overview of other disciplines. It is expected that engineering graduates from School of Technology will care about issues that technology can make difference whether these issues are of health, security, economic well-being or sustainability of world and values. The pedagogy involves industrial orientation, industry internships, civic and social internships, international exposure, workshops and presentations, all geared to give the right learning ecosystem for industry-ready talent. SOT offers 4 years B. Tech., 2 years M. Tech., 2 years M.Sc., 4 years B.Sc. (Hons.) and Doctoral programs in various branches of engineering and sciences.
