EDUCATION WEEK – International Undergraduate University Students
One of the key youth programmes and most comprehensive, is the exclusive university student IPTC Education Week. This programme offers a unique experience that aims to assist selected students with their transition from student to young professional. IPTC Education Week will typically host up to 100 of the best senior undergraduate science, geoscience, and engineering students from national and international institutions around the world.
Top-performing university students will be the ones to shape the future of energy, and IPTC recognizes the importance of providing real-life experiences outside of the classroom to help develop these young talents. In each edition of IPTC senior undergraduate science, geoscience, and engineering students from around the world are invited to participate in IPTC’s Education Week. The programme aims to give students a unique and exclusive insight into the industry they are about to join, allowing them to return to their universities and colleges with a positive story to share with their peers. They will be given the opportunity throughout the five-day programme to form new friendships with colleagues from around the world, whilst working together on a joint activity, as well as many chances to interact with major industry employers who are looking to recruit the best talent. Under the theme of ‘Shaping the Future of Energy,’ participating students will walk away from this edition of Education Week with long-lasting connections and memories.
During this five-day programme, students will experience a multitude of activities that aim to prepare them for life beyond university. These activities may include: developing their professional skills by learning from experienced and young professionals, working together on joint projects, networking with their peers and executives in the oil and gas industry, attending IPTC technical and panel sessions and participating in dynamic field trips.
NOTE: Students’ travel and accommodation will be covered by IPTC through sponsorships.
