The department is focused on facilitating the flow of knowledge in the domain through its advanced pedagogy and state-of-the-art research facilities to the students. It enables them to understand, develop and apply the knowledge gained in the fields of Geology, Geophysics, Reservoir, Drilling, Production Operations, and Economics required in the Petroleum Industry. The department hosts a number of laboratories for undergraduate studies and research in Reservoir Engineering, Drilling Fluid design and analysis, Enhanced oil recovery, Flow assurance, Reservoir modelling and simulation, Gas Hydrates, Geology, Geophysics, and Rock mechanics.

Established in the year 2007, the aim of the department is to make its mark in the Oil and Gas Industries in the country by providing industry-ready students who can work in the challenging and upcoming areas. The department, under the able guidance of six leading Oil Public Sector Units (ONGC, IOCL, OIL, GAIL, BPCL, and HPCL) in association with the Oil Industry Development Board (OIDB), has marked its presence to the academia and research in the domain of petroleum engineering. Alumni of this department have been associated with esteemed industries like ONGC, Schlumberger, Halliburton Services, Baker Hughes, Shell, Oil India, Adani Gas, Essar Oil, Cairn Oil and Gas among others.

The department has experienced faculty members, technical personnel aided by industry experts whose achievements have brought accolades to the Institute. The undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by the department are at par with the courses offered by most International Universities in the domain of Petroleum Engineering. The department has also launched a IDD program in Geoscience & Engineering (B.Tech. in Geoscience and Engineering and M.Tech. in Geophysical Technology/Geological Technology) from the academic year 2021-22 to improve the understanding of the prediction behavior of the earth systems and processes, and exploration of natural resources.
