UPES AAPG Student Chapter originated in 2012, is a bench of the globally recognized AAPG Foundation. With a vision to empower motivated students and curb the academia-industry gap, the team actively conducts 50+ events throughout the year. In eight years, our team has conducted five editions of international workshops and conferences, named CRUST. Our members have been awarded the prestigious L. Austin Week's Undergraduate Grant since 2014 and, our chapter won it as an independent organization in 2019 & 2020. These achievements have only been possible because of our ceaseless determination and teamwork, which proves true the famous quote, “When a team plays, anyone can be the man of the match but in the end, the whole team wins.” It is my honour to act as the Faculty Advisor of Team UPES AAPG. Our team has time and time again converted dreams into reality and, I hope we will keep scaling greater heights.
