Quali sono gli obiettivi della formazione?

The program aims to teach its students to effectively address complex challenges of hydrocarbon recovery:
- The program was designed jointly with leading universities from Russia, United States, Canada, United Kingdom and other European countries.
- The curriculum is built around major oil production issues, including development of unconventional and hard-to-recover reserves, such as heavy oil, shale oil, and offshore oil fields.
- Our graduates gain insight into how the oil and gas sector works and learn to identify and solve its outstanding issues.
- We teach how to use mathematical modeling, mathematical physics and data analysis techniques in oil and gas projects.
- Students apply their knowledge and skills in joint research and industrial projects with the industry's leading corporations and international labs.

Requisiti: - Education: Relevant bachelor's degree, or its equivalent in Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Geology, Petroleum Engineering and IT. - English Language: If your education has not been conducted in English, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency.

Opinioni sul corso

Il meglio: The social and academic motivation and its proximity to the city makes it desirable to learn in Brunel.

Il meglio: Being the student of BA Industrial Design and Technology I don’t find this University is recommendable for any design student. They are not at all focused on the subjects and there are no rooms for customisation. The professors are biased, the staffs are unwelcoming and they offer such course information which is easily available on YouTube.

Il meglio: Minds, hearts and hands! Skoltech helps you rediscover true learning: experiential in every sense engaging your mind, heart and hands. It is a transformative experience and I loved every part of the journey

Il meglio: I choose Skoltech for several reasons. The first one is that I was studying Chemistry (oil refining) at Lomonosov MSU and at Skoltech I found an interesting Petroleum Engineering program. It seemed to me logical to cover both upstream and downstream, before going to work at a large oil corporation and aiming for low/middle-management positions. The second reason is that while I was studying at MSU, I was building (or at least was trying) a startup. I truly believe that Skoltech is a great place for entrepreneurs. Here you can receive a lot of support for your ideas: connections, mentoring, entrepreneurial workshops and lectures, opportunity to visit local and international startup events, find a co-funder, it is even possible to get the first investment. This is sort of an incubator where people around you are ready to help, but you have to take the initiative yourself. Another great thing about Skoltech is the American education style. You can choose classes yourself, all of them are entirely in English, professors often become your friends (if you are lucky and friendly enough, you can even grab a beer with them at the end of the course). The last but not least, you will have a pretty good stipend. ;)
