UPES SPE STUDENT CHAPTER
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.
Every year, the Chapter organises the UPES SPE Fest which is a big attraction for students not only in India, but also from abroad. Buoyed by the overwhelming success of UPES SPE Fest 2015 and 2016 which witnessed a participation of over 400 students from India, Kazakhstan, Russia, Bangladesh, Nigeria & Saudi Arabia, the Chapter plans to host this technical festival on a grander scale this year by taking it to a higher dimension.
In 2017, the Chapter aims at a larger-than-life technical fest with the theme of Conquering Changes, laying specific stress upon the recent tumultuous downturn in the oil and gas industry. The preparations are in full swing for all events, which involve everything from mud challenge to a bidding event to quiz to paper and poster presentation. An immense number of participants have already registered for the upcoming fest events, and the committee members are giving their best, with all noses to the grindstone. The seventh edition of this captivating fest, the UPES SPE Fest 2017 will be organized from 9th to 11th February 2017 and is set to provide all its participants with unparalleled exposure towards the Oil and Gas Industry. Keeping in mind the current scenario in the sector and to combat the challenges faced due to the volatility of crude oil prices, the Chapter shall conduct a Technical Conference on Day 2 of the UPES SPE Fest 2017, that is, on 10th February, 2017.
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”.
