Education Week

Education Week is organised for up to 100 of the best 3rd and 4th year undergraduate university students who major in science, geoscience and engineering from international institutions. This programme is designed to provide students with a clear insight into the energy industry. Students will be given opportunities to work on a joint project and extend their networks, as well as meet with major industry players who are constantly searching for fresh talent. Selected students from around the world will have their travel and accommodation funded by IPTC in order to attend this week-long programme held concurrently to the IPTC event.
IPTC Education Week was a unique and unforgettable experience allowing me to share knowledge and connect with friends from different countries. Attending this multidisciplinary event and learning about the latest technologies let me expand my vision of the petroleum industry around the world
