We report that some of our students of the MSc in Energy Management (MEM) will participate in their annual study trip to Calgary and Fort McMurray, Canada from 22nd - 27th June, 2015.
Alberta is Canada’s leading producer of petrochemicals, and a leader in technology and research on oil sands and heavy oil. Natural gas production and export are also important to the country’s economy. By participating in the seminar, students will experience how business and expertise are utilised to create innovative new practices, and be exposed to business know-how, industry and public policy issues in both the academic and industry environments.
Participants will attend lectures by local experts, seminars by practitioners, and engage in company visits. The objective of the seminar is to learn about the expertise, technologies and services delivered within the Energy Industry and how to differentiate globally.
