About the Department
Depending upon the qualification, skill set and experience, a Petroleum Engineer can work globally as Reservoir Engineer, Technical Support Engineer, Senior Geoscientist, Drill Bits System Field Engineer, Petroleum Technologist, Drilling Engineer, Production Engineer, Mud Engineer, Mud Logger, Completion Engineer, Flow assurance Engineer and Driller. Students are guided by faculty, industry –professionals and retired engineers on contract basis.
The department has highly qualified faculty members with rich experience in teaching and research; some of them have visited international institutions of repute for collaborative teaching and research programmes while some others have presented their research findings in international forums abroad. The faculty members attract funds from national and international agencies in the form of research grants. The faculty members regularly publish research articles in indexed, peer reviewed international and national journals. The syllabus is consciously designed to help students to assimilate , at every stage, the rapid trends and progressive growth in this exciting field. Students are admitted by selection through merit—based on percentage of marks secured in the VISTAS Entrance Examination.

4 years in VISTAS is quite good and very interesting. I learnt lot of things during the course of study both in academics and non-academics. Faculties are friendly and they are very helpful in getting internships. I gained practical knowledge during our industrial visits. Faculties are very helpful in doing my project and management is very helpful in all the aspects.
Assistant Manager in Essar oil and gas exploration and production in Durgapur, West Bengal.
I graduated from VISTAS in the year 2020 with my Bachelor’s in Petroleum Engineering. I am currently working in Dismantling offshore structure and Ship recycling as HSE officer. So, my overall experience with VISTAS has been really impactful and the journey as a student for four years has been great. I feel like VISTAS provides a very favorable environment for ballistic development. The professor of VISTAS are highly qualified and experienced for several years. They are very interactive with the students, which help to students in being free with them.
