The Gazprom Management Committee’s session on cooperation with UTMN has taken place in the Gazprom Neft Corporate Centre in Saint Petersburg.  
The Gazprom Management Committee’s session on cooperation with the University of Tyumen has taken place in the Gazprom Neft Corporate Centre in Saint Petersburg. The event gathered senior officials from Gazprom, headed by Deputy Chairman of Management Board and First Deputy CEO, Vadim Yakovlev, and a delegation from the university, headed by the Rector Valery Falkov. The Director of UTMN Polytechnic School, Mikhail Pisarev, presented the short-term development strategy of the school to those present.



“To date, the Polytechnic School has only one MA programme - Conceptual Engineering for the Oil and Gas Industry,” explained Mikhail Pisarev. “Our current development strategy includes the introduction of three new educational programmes. Apart from the Conceptual Engineering MA programme, the Polytechnic School plans to offer two more supplementary education programmes – 'Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Management' and 'Petroleum Systems Engineering' as well as one more masters programme, 'Data Management in the Oil and Gas Industry'”. 

“Our strategic partners from Gazprom’s top management commended the development strategy of the UTMN Polytechnic School. Now we need to offer petroleum engineers a new, unique masters programme that will fully meet the needs of the industry,” commented UTMN Rector Valery Falkov. 

The meeting participants paid special attention to the prospects of the new masters programme. It’s an interesting, breakthrough field, one which Gazprom Neft PJSC is actively developing and needs qualified specialists in, and UTMN has everything necessary to implement the programme. 

“The new masters programme is extremely relevant as it doesn’t consider big data in general but focuses on it’s place in the oil and gas industry,” said the Polytechnic School’s Director. “The new programme will allow us to train data analysis and processing specialists, taking into account that they already have qualifications and experience in the oil industry”. 

The university has some advantages which make it an excellent launchpad for the new programme. First of all, UTMN has world-class IT specialists who regularly substantiate their capabilities by winning in the WorldSkills competitions. Besides, the university has a beneficial location that ensures a close proximity and cooperation experience with the leading oil and gas companies’ research centres. 

The session participants approved UTMN’s and the school’s work in realizing the Conceptual Engineering for the Oil and Gas Industry masters programme and its plans to launch the HSE Management programme in March or April. The other two programmes were also recognized as promising. 

It is important to note that building an environment for training international-level professionals for Russia’s leading hydrocarbon companies is named in UTMN’s Competitiveness Enhancement Programme for the 5-100 Project
