Well I’m experiencing an amazing atmosphere here in UPES. Currently I’m studying in 2nd semester and the exposure this college gives is appreciable. The faculty, the quality of education delivered by them is very precious and up to the mark. The environment too contributes to the beauty of the education here. And the best thing about the college environment is that you won’t hear a single horn noise when you’re in campus. Not only education, but this college contributes to the co-curricular and overall development of the student by organising many conclaves, events and panel discussions. One can know the hidden aspects about himself/herself by participating in such events. Now coming to the things that the college is not that good at. First of all, the fests. 2 annual fest i.e. Uurja and Ignite are organised by the college which are not good and grand as compared to other colleges. The sports activities that should be encouraged is not that upto the mark like the basketball court is too crooked and the amount of participation among students is very low. Now at the end, I’d like to conclude that UPES is overall is a ‘good’ college but if someone is getting other good private engineering college, I’ll suggest them to take admission there.

Infrastructure – As the college is in Dehradun which is famous for its surroundings and weather conditions so one do not bother much about infrastructure but still it is in a good condition. Upes has two campuses. One is located in bidhoi and another one in kandoli. There is a gap of seven kilometres between them and both are functional. The campus situated in bidhoi is functional for all BTech, BCA and petroleum department students whereas the campus in kandoli is for the departments of law and management courses. Each campus has its own library for its students and the central library is in bidholi. Placements - placements in upes is best for petroleum as this college is best inn studies of petroleum and energy studies.after that for the students of computer science and other departments. Faculty- faculty in uoes is very well educated and with good experience. Upes laid its foundation in 2003 so it has many experienced faculties. The faculty here teach using both the traditional book system and some use ppts to teach. One can reach out to them during the college hours only and after that one has to take prior permissions to contact them or and ask them is arrange an extra class on the weekends. Affordability – college is costly. But the facilities here are accordingly to the price only. Mess’s food is good and hostel rooms are spacious further security here is also strict. After 930at night no one s allowed t cross the hostel gates. Campus’s hostel is also costly. Recreational facilities – the campus has a volleyball court, football ground, badminton court and a basketball court. One can get full refreshment from a hectic day in the hostel and campus. Student diversity – students here are coming from middle class and upper-class families. Most students here are from Chandigarh, Haryana and Delhi.

Amazing journey at UPES Dehradun

It was an amazing journey of 5 years at UPES Dehradun. I have done my 4-year Btech in 2016 and since then I always keep thinking about the good time I spend there. I give full credit to UPES for my career growth. UPES has provided me great learning platform which helped me a lot in the industry where I am working right now. We had various kind of seminar and workshops for our specialized courses. Love you all for making my time more precious at UPES. Miss you!

Before entering the college everybody has some expectations of getting a good job and good exposures about the industry. The college is helping us in doing so. Our college has recently collaborated with L&T constructions. it comes in our college for regular guest lectures and workshops. It helps us in getting all the valuable knowledge. We also get to visit several sites for surveying camps and other operations which helps us in getting the industry exposure as well.

College has a very beautiful location. It provides you with almost all the facilities you need in the class room. The bast part about the college is the crowd and the different type of chapters which helps in learning and growing. The thing which bothers is that it has subjects only on theoretical basis. There should be some practical knowledge related to it. About the placements yes companies do visit but they have the no. of students so high that making each and everyone placed in the core company is not possible.

One of the unique course

College has great industry exposure opportunity through multiple compulsory internships in the curriculum. The faculty members here all IIT graduated except few. Its infrastructure is quite good in terms of the sports facility. Though hostel is not within the college campus, the college has its own hostel outside with appropriate mess.

Best environment

college does not only provide industry exposure through two compulsory internships in the curriculum, it also provides exposure in terms of extracurricular activity. It sends its team for participation in all sorts of technical, cultural and sports events, thus providing enough exposure in all sorts of talent. Facilities provided are well and good. Support from college faculties and staffs are best. Education is more focused on practical knowledge rather than theoretical knowledge. Thus education is much more fun.

I have never been to a place that I have simultaneously loved and hated as much as UPES. I have been challenged in every way, and it has made a stronger person coming out of the other side. I have made some of the best friends here and met some of the smartest and most interesting people as well.UPES is the first place that made me feel stupid, but it also made me realize that comparing myself to others is a terrible way to measure success and that I needed to be the best I could be .

Awesome life.....

UPES provide many opporunities and exposure on both industrial as well as intercollegiate level. Though it on upto you that you find your ways to grab on those opportunities. Sharing my experience we need to regularly interact with our teachers and be in touch with our heads and seniors for new opporunities and competitons

UPES is not only a very good platform for studies but it also focuses on enhancing the personality of students. Upes give us very much experienced Faculty members which help us in studies as well as supportive in project works. Here grounds life is magnificent yet lodging sustenance is not very great. In spite of the fact that it is one of the best Petroleum colleges of India however it's placement is not upto the mark. Overall it is good.

The campus is fully equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and learning tools for domain specific engineering studies. This includes a Fire Safety Ground, Biodiesel Fueling Station, SOLAR INSTALLATION, In-house Oil Rig, Tatra Truck as well as a Wind Mill apart from other facilities such as smart classrooms and an exhaustive e-library with digitized resources. The concept of outdoor labs further enhances the learning experience at UPES.The curriculum of these programs includes sector centric knowledge along with theories pertinent to the future of the core industries.

Well To be completely honest with you, the foundation of upes are petroleum oriented branches. Although upes offers numerous trades with promising carrier oppertunities, but unless you have a geniune interest in those trades do not opt for them. The specialization courses seems quite exclusive for now but the scope of new branches like nano technology, nuclear etc in india is still debated and placement after 4 years cannot be predicted at this stage as given that most of these branches are new (the first batch will graduate this year or upcoming year except old branches) The university is in its expansion phase right now and the oppertunities for other branches are also increasing along with time (things may be quite good for them after 4 years) but at present the Petroleum sector is of course the best one since university has really good reputation and contacts in this sector. But as i have said earlier if you have a genuine interest in a particular sector, go for it. May be upes will provide you just the right thing.

The infrastructure is not that great considering the amount of fees they are charging. The faculty here, like any other Engineering college, is a blend of useless, mediocre and outstanding professors. The uniform incorporated as part of college decorum is a subject to varying opinions of people with contrasting mindsets. All in all, it's an average university.

A confused decision turned good

I ended up joining UPES, Dehradun in the heat of the moment after being frustrated post my boards as my oh so good luck and my special ability to procrastinate did not really let me crack the "honourable" entrance examinations of our country. However, I ended up joining the university for good. The infrastructure of the college is really modern and stunning. The buildings look stylish and classy. The college provides good corporate exposure by providing various kind of workshops and conclaves in collaboration with big companies for the benefits of the students. The college is quite strict and oddly enough that is exactly what makes our college life even more interesting. People tend to assume that once you get into college, the freedom to do anything whatsoever is all yours. However, if you turn up at UPES just like I did, trust me it wouldn't be so. The feeling of thrill of bunking classes that I used to experience in school remained same nonetheless. The student crowd of the college is pretty good too as the people are really sociable, supportive and friendly. The faculty is average but some professors are really good. Overall, the college has a good ambience, just a little pricey.

Good infrastructure, guest lectures by the professionals, exposure to industry, various competetive opportunities makes this college different from other ones. Faculties are highly experienced. One can get good industry exposure by working in so many projects offered to the students. Many people don't know about the college because of less marketing. Faculties are highly experienced.

The only drawback of the college is its high fees due to which people have to think twice before getting their ward admitted in .

It was not as simple as it seems to be.

Most of the faculty have enough experience and huge amount of knowledge and their way of teaching is also different from other colleges.And this university provides enough industry exposure.Hostel are also good with enough facilities.Talking about the placement in my field is not so good.

This college is awarded with very high specialization but dividing a simpler branch into many specialization is not of any benefit. The only reason the students get good jobs is because they develop their own skills by their own hard work. Faculty is qualified but very few are able to express the knowledge they have. Administration is very poor more or less every company keeps on blacklisting the college. I recommend this college but not for the APE-GAS branch. this branch is stuck in a middle of both the sectors of petroleum industry.

Best Petroleum Engineering College in India

When I joined the college I felt proud that I am pursuing APE with specialisation in Gas from UPES. The teaching faculty as well as the placements of the college are great. A no.of core companies visit our campus for placements. Along this we are also having a no.of student chapters who guide the students how to make a sound career. On a scale of 10 I will give 9.8 marks to UPES

Encountering the unexpected

The best part is the location of the university. The campus isn't on a large area yet the infrastructure is well enough to accommodate the crowd. Since it provides specialisation in the field of study, it provides a great platform for the students. Student Chapters increase the exposure to Industry and opportunities to portray their talents.

The college wi-fi infrastructure is very poor and even some students aren't able to use the college wifi due to some college restrictions and they loot you in the name of specialization . The re are some faculties who doesn't even have the full knowledge about the subject and they themselves are halfway lost when they teach us ... events happen a lot that's a plus point .

Good collage if u want a real life exposure

Comapring with other collage this collage is much better in placement. but the one of major draw back is the fee of the collage. some of faculty are very experienced and some are new so they don't have much exp. work load is the major thing that is given to the students, collage is not good in the case of transport as it away from the city do there is more headach in transport. placement are about 100%, if u r not having any BACK . collage dont give much exposure in sports and party. but if u want an good computer klgd then is is good place.
