Petroleum engineering students usually learn about basic engineering methods and techniques and from second year very specialized course in petroleum engineering are offered that include Reservoir studies, Gas Hydrates, Environmental Impact of Petroleum Fluid Operation, Characterization of Crude oil, Development of Computer Software, Polymer synthesis and Characterization, Profile Modification, Development of Novel Fracturing Fluid, Characterization and Separation of oil-water emulsion etc.
In this course, students will learn subsurface activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. The two key area of learning will be oil exploration and processing of crude oils. Oil refining and distribution are also though in this course of Engineering.
