A new classroom for students of oil and gas engineering programs has been presented at USU
The presentation of a classroom equipped with pumps for borehole oil production was held at the university center of oil and gas engineering education. The event was attended by Boris Kostishko, the Rector of USU, Sergey Baklanov, the Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs, as well as the heads of the companies Ulyanovskneft OJSC and ELKAM LLC, that provided support to equip a new classroom. The USU experience in training specialists for the oil and gas industry was demonstrated at the presentation and participants discussed issues for further cooperation between the university and enterprises.
“The theoretical basis of education in the oil and gas industry is important, but this is not enough,” said Alexander Pylin, associate professor at the department of oil and gas engineering and service, who spoke at the presentation as a moderator. “Modern oil industry training is impossible without practical work. So the contribution of our partners is invaluable. ”
To date, the department of oil and gas engineering and service enrolled about 300 students, who now have more opportunities to master practical skills in the learning process.
