JAMMU, Sept 16: Furthering its efforts towards bridging the gap between industrial application and institutional training, city-based Parul University has become the first in Vadodara and second in Gujarat to start the student chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineering (SPE).
This student chapter was inaugurated by J Tikku, Chief General Manager of ONGC at the University’s campus.
The Faculty of Engineering’s Petroleum Department has been constantly making efforts towards providing its students with the most enriching exposure to practical learning from their constant association with the experts in this field.
On the occasion, Ashish Thapliyal, Mani Bansal and Piyush Nene of the SPE India Section were also present along with a total of 219 petroleum engineering students.
“The need to engage students on a more global level has been one of the major drives behind Parul University’s educational efforts. This SPE chapter is one amongst such initiatives which is committed towards enhancing the participation of its members in industries which are ever changing and ever growing such as the petroleum industry. This student chapter will add significant value to our students and their petroleum engineering learning process. SPE maintains a position of great value and significance and the inclusion of our students in this initiative will definitely shape and nurture them towards this path of growth in the industry,” said the University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr MN Patel.
