UPES offers a plethora of Engineering programs for a student to choose from. The differentiating feature about these courses are that they are designed in such a way that a student is able to learn the traits of a field of study through classroom learning. To be more precise, there are two predominant schools of engineering at UPES- School of Engineering and School of Computer Science. Each of these schools are the further divided into specialised departments namely-

Aerospace, Earth Science, Mechanical, Health Safety and Environment and Electrical in School of Engineering.

Cybernetics, Informatics, Systemics and Computer Application in School of Computer Science. The courses offered include Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning, DevOps (Xebia), Internet of Things, Open source and Standards, Oil and Gas Informatics and many others listed on the website in detail.

Each of these courses start with a basic foundational course of Physics, Engineering Mathematics, Chemistry, and English and Professional Communication in the first year of study. As a student moves along the ladder to the second year, the specialised courses are introduced as Domain subjects. Minor Project and Major Project incorporated later in the pre final year make the learning more experiential and on the job.

During the semester breaks, students land in internship from leading firms in their core sector. UPES has MoUs with giants in the core engineering sectors and computer science. The internships are arranged by the Career service team at UPES, which later make the students with through trainings for Placement Selection.

Accelerated and meritorious students have the chance to go for student exchange to Universities across the world.

The kind of exposure students get on campus at UPES is one of the best in the country. Global student chapters have strong association with respective departments that help student in learning about the advances in their domain.

The growth of a student in Engineering at UPES us more holistic than others in the country.
