    In groups, we band together and explore new realities.

    Individual entities united by a thirst for knowledge, we grow as we learn

    Experience is the only teacher we have.

    We may talk and reason all our lives, but we shall not understand a word of truth,
    until we experience it ourselves

  • laptopmockup_sliderdy

    Until we practice, until we feel the elements working under our own influence,
    until we realize how things actually work, until then, there can be no learning.
    This is the true spirit of engineering


The UPES SPE Student Chapter was established in 2009 with a vision of enabling students to become early contributors to the oil and gas E&P industry by actively participating in the exchange of technical knowledge regarding the same, and to enhance their technical and professional competence at the same time. Today, the Chapter is a benchmark for excellence in all undertakings, be it planning & operations, social responsibility, industrial involvement or professionalism. The values of the Chapter are its backbone, because the Chapter subscribes to the ideology that an individual and an organisation are both described by their value systems. Some of these values include: Innovation, Professionalism, Volunteering, Continuous Learning and Social Responsibility.

The inaugural 2010 edition was intra college event, whereas the most recent 2013 edition was international success. The Chapter achieved the rare distinction of being awarded the Gold Standard Award for three successive years (2011 to 2013).

The Chapter continues to grow by leaps and bounds and achieve new standards of brilliance every day, moving onwards towards better and greater goals, firmly inculcating in all its associates, the spirit of “miles to go before I sleep”.
