The SPE student chapter holds many events in order to improve the well-being and morale of the students. London has a wide array of possibilities for social events. As such, we intend to make the most of it.
BP mentoring event-18/01/2017
SPE Imperial College London successfully invite BP to organize the first BP Mentoring Event for students. This event is open to all Imperial MSc Petroleum Engineering and PhD students and takes place in 1.31 from 6:00pm onwards. Rudolf Umla, a BP Reservoir Engineer with an Imperial College PhD in Petroleum Engineering will be leading this initiative and has kindly attached a few documents summarizing the benefits of the scheme. Rudolf wishes started the event off with a case study about the major North Sea oil field Schiehallion followed by an informal Q&A discussion with Rudolf and his BP colleagues.
This event is not only a fantastic networking opportunity for students, but also an opportunity to gain more invaluable insights into a career within the Petroleum Industry, get support for technical questions related to MSc / PhD thesis, and even receive job applications tips, all in a more relaxed and informal setting.
