University of Petroleum and Energy Studies, India Signs Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) For Educational and Scientific Research & Cooperation with

New Delhi, India | Posted on November 26th, 2008

University of Waterloo and UPES have current areas of specialization and the expertise at the two institutions; the institutions have extended their cooperation to each other within the scope of the agreement which comprises of three major elements,

-- Education: Exchange and Placement of students on their co-operative education work-term from the University of Waterloo in departments within UPES or its affiliated organizations in India. Placement of Doctoral Research Students of UPES for carrying out research at University of Waterloo research facilities, under joint supervision of UW and UPES faculty members

-- Research: Both the above said universities will have Joint research activities and Joint development studies and capacity building activities to improve the basis for enhancing energy security, reliability of the energy infrastructure, environmental performance and affordability of energy services to help improve life quality

-- Incubation: Incubation of technology companies at the Research and Technology Park at University of Waterloo

On this occasion Mr. Parag Diwan, Vice chancellor of UPES said, "We are very happy to sign MOU with University of Waterloo, which is Canada's most premium Engineering Research University. This collaboration would lead to joint research for Renewable Energy, Nanotechnology and Nuclear Engineering. This collaboration would also provide opportunities for our students and faculty team members to spend time and attain experience from each others campus for cross fertilizing the ideas".

At this occasion Mr. David Johnston, president Of University of Waterloo said that, "The University of Petroleum & Energy study is the budding name in the field of scientific research and educational sector. We are happy to collaborate with the university and would work very closely in the coming future."

UPES has also signed the MOU with The Centennial Energy Institute (CEI), which is an entity within the School of Engineering Technology and Applied Science (SETAS) of Centennial College and Centre for Alternate Energy Research (CAER), which will explore the potential for cooperation and active collaboration to foster exchanges in education, training and research with University Of Petroleum & Energy studies. CEI & UPES have specific areas of specialization and expertise at the two institutions; the forms of cooperation within the scope of this collaboration would comprise of three major elements, (i) Training, (ii) Projects and (iii) Funded Research Programs, under which both the universities would work to give the best ground to the students and the industry.

About University of Petroleum & Energy Studies
In today’s highly competitive corporate world, companies need a rich foundation of human capital to get the cutting edge. University of Petroleum & Energy Studies is one such name which has immerged in the education sector as the fastest growing University which has successfully raised the benchmark for Indian Education by designing its courses to train its students, as domain specialist professionals. UPES is approved by UGC. Under the governance of the top professionals from the industry, academy and from the govt. like Mr. S. Behuria, Chairman, Indian Oil Corporation Ltd., Mr. Ashok Sinha, CMD, Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd., Mr. M. B. Lal, Technical Member (Petroleum & Gas) etc, UPES offers 33 specialized programs across Oil & Gas sector, Power sector, Transportation, Infrastructure, Logistics & Supply Chain sectors. It is also the first institute to set Bio-Diesel Laboratory and first to implement SAP.

After considering the competence of UPES, the foreign leading universities have shown interest in the fastest emerging university and have taken a step forward to tie-up with the emerging university of India, UPES which is successfully creating a constant pool of technical and managerial human resources. UPES is ready to deploy its talent in helping companies to quickly roll out their expansion plans and save huge expenditures in creating support training infrastructure.

The foundation of University of Petroleum & Energy studies was laid 5 years ago, when the Indian Energy sectors were breaching the gap and was getting integrated to Global Energy Environment and now UPES offers over 33 graduate, post graduate and doctoral programs to more than 2900 students across its 3 centers Dehradun (Uttaranchal), Gurgaon (NCR) & Rajahmundry (Andhra Pradesh).
