Bharat Petroleum takes great pride in its association as one of the founding members along with The Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (MOP and NG), Government of India to set up The Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT) at Jais, Dist. Rae Bareli, Uttar Pradesh.
RGIPT was set up through an Act of Parliament and has been accorded the eminence of being an “Institute of National Importance”, similar to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). With the status of a deemed university, the Institute is empowered to award degrees in Petroleum Engineering & Technology and in its own right. RGIPT is co-promoted as an energy domain specific institute by six leading Oil Public Sector Units (ONGC, IOCL, OIL, GAIL, BPCL and HPCL) in association with the Oil Industry Development Board (OIDB). The Institute is associated with leading International Universities/Institutions specializing in the domain of Petroleum Technology.
The prime objective of the Institute is to provide world class education, training, and research to roll out efficient human resources to meet the growing requirements of the Petroleum and Energy sector. The aspiration is to develop India as a global manpower hub for the entire Petroleum and Energy Sector on a global scale.
RGIPT has an ambitious plan—to offer a total of 33 Bachelor’s Degree programs and Master’s Degree programs, PG diploma courses and Doctoral programs in Petroleum Technology and Management in phases. From academic year 2008-2009, NOIDA and Uttar Pradesh will impart the MBA program and Rae Bareli will impart two Technical programs.
