Lucknow, Nov 30 (PTI) With emergence of new job categories following government’s mega initiatives like Digital India, Skill India, Smart Cities and Make in India and to meet changing landscape of businesses, Dehradun-based University of Petroleum and Energy Studies has started several new courses.
“To make the best use of these opportunities, we have launched new programmes having future relevance so that students do not choose just what is prevalent today or what their peers are doing,” UPES CEO-cum-President Utpal Ghosh said today.
He said to arm students with relevant industry knowledge and smart skills for the future, UPES has 79 graduate and post-graduate programmes across 14 core sectors like energy, IT, design and planning, architecture, business, public policy and legal studies.

Ghosh said that because of its multi-disciplinary courses, UPES graduates were selected for jobs by various companies.
“UPES has maintained a consistent placement track record of 85 per cent,” he said, adding it was a QS rated university with 5 stars for both placements and campus facilities and 4 stars for teaching.
He said UPES students pursing BTech specialisation courses recently participated in global aerospace competition – CanSat 2016 – and grabbed first position in Europe and Asia. CanSat competition is organised by American Astronautical Society, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and NASA.
