As a Well Engineer, I belong to multi-disciplinary project teams consisting of Geologists, Reservoir Engineers, Petro Physicists, etc. With my training in IPS, I am able to understand the work done by these colleagues. I can appreciate the uncertainties and risks that they identify in their scopes.
IPS gave me an invaluable opportunity to be here today. It equipped me with the basic technical and soft skills to work in the industry. IPS imbibes you with discipline, good work ethics and collaborative skills which automatically gives you a head start that propels you beyond the reach of your contemporaries within and beyond the industry
- “Looking for a school that will revolutionize your thinking, behavioural pattern, and quest for knowledge? IPS is doing just that. IPS builds a complete oil and gas engineer and has launched me on a path to a successful career.”
- My presentation and communication skills were greatly improved at IPS and has been a springboard for me. Resilience cannot be taken away from an IPS graduate who through tough study times persevered till the end
- The IPS experience made me constantly strive to be a better version of myself (personally & professionally). It taught me that teamwork, commitment and consistency are keys to achieving goals. Nowadays, no matter how difficult a task or situation may seem, I believe it is possible to overcome.
- With dedicated and motivated tutors, updated knowledge base with industry exposure and a student community that fosters camaraderie and bonds that last far beyond the study period... IPS, without a doubt, is the best school i have studied at.
