Mission Mode Projects

The Centre of Excellence in Oil, Gas, and Energy at IIT Bombay envisages to develop technology interventions in consortium mode with PSUs to address future challenges in the oil, gas, and energy sector. To facilitate this, various projects in mission mode will be undertaken. These projects will aim at developing and delivering technologies related to present and future issues of the PSUs taking from lab to implementation-ready stage with the core teams that will consist of faculty from IIT Bombay, and representatives from minimum two relevant PSUs.
