School of Petroleum Management

School of Petroleum Management offers programmes addressing the managerial requirements of Oil & Gas sector. The course covers Management, Economics, Supply Chain, International Geo-Political affairs, Project Management, Accounting & Finance and Law - to mention a few areas and lays special emphasis on the Oil & Gas Sector.

The flagship two-year full time residential programme leading to MBA follows a trimester format. The programme is tailored for the Oil & Gas sector, although they are initially introduced in a generic format. In the second year, the students have to choose elective courses specially designed for the energy sector while placing special emphasis on Oil & Gas domain. The courses are constantly evaluated, updated and redesigned in keeping with the dynamic and global characteristic which defines this sector.

To enrich the academic quality of this programme, high profile energy management professionals are invited for short term workshops and capsule courses and these focused interactions enrich the academic experience of the students, through industry wide exposure and subsequently used as a valuable resource in future learning.

The MBA programme is a fully residential program and is richly enabled through state of the art facilities to ensure a holistic learning experience with a clear intent to encourage interaction, communication, knowledge sharing and group dynamics. The two graduating batches, have been well placed in leading oil and gas sector companies and consulting agencies and have demonstrated the relevance of this specialized programme in their professional environment.

School of Petroleum Management also offers the PGDPM-X programme for working professionals to keep them abreast of the latest managerial and applied development in the Oil & Gas sector. This programme has been well received by oil and gas sector professionals who value it as a relevant mid career academic qualification while on the job.

School of Solar Energy

Today it is more evident than ever before that energy is a vital and critical prerequisite of human life. Possibly, this fact has always been recognized by our sages, but in recent years modern life has added a sharp and anxious edge to our own realization of it.

Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) has taken a significant step forward in establishing the School of Solar Energy, to conduct teaching and research in the technologies needed to supply energy efficiently and on an environmentally sound basis to meet the necessities of today’s life.

The School of Solar Energy provides an excellent academic and research led environment for solar energy related studies. The school has adopted a collaborative approach and is in active contact with academics and scientists involved in extensive solar energy research across the world. Research plans are based on the fact that there are possibilities of achieving excellent scientific breakthroughs in this relatively nascent field and could go a long way in addressing the energy issues of the globe in the not too distant future.

Towards this objective, School of Solar Energy plans to develop systems, components and processes in the areas of solar thermal energy, photovoltaic and related electronics, micro-energy systems, chemical energy conversion, energy storage and rational use of energy.
