Our collaboration with Italian universities

We make our knowledge available to students by sharing our technical knowledge with various Italian universities so that it can be integrated into Master's degrees focused especially on the energy industry. Because today's students may become Eni people tomorrow.

The degree courses in Geology and Geophysics

An overview of the accessible programmes.

Partner: University of Pisa.

Purpose: The master's degree program trains geophysicists with a solid multidisciplinary scientific preparation and a strong aptitude for problem solving.

The course provides the student with:

·solid foundations of mathematics and physics;

·advanced computational and numerical skills;

·theoretical and practical knowledge of the main geophysical survey methods - seismic, electrical, electromagnetic, gravimetric, radar methods - and rock physics and analysis and interpretation of well data.

The skills acquired are used in various areas of geophysics which, among others, include the characterization of the subsoil, the exploration of georesources and the mitigation of geological/environmental risks.

Duration: 2 academic years

Programme: courses are held at the University of Pisa, in English, supplemented by seminars provided by Eni experts and international personalities from the academic and industrial world.

The program includes laboratory activities (i.e., programming in Python and Matlab and processing of geophysical data), exercises on the solution of inverse problems, on applications of machine learning and seismic imaging techniques, and also includes geophysical campaigns with acquisition and subsequent processing of seismic, magnetic, radar, gravimetric, electric and electromagnetic data.

Thanks to a partnership between the University of Pisa and the Montan University of Leoben (Austria), students will also be able to carry out a semester of study at the Montan University and obtain a Double Degree. Internships at Eni are also planned for selected students aimed at drafting the Master's degree thesis.

Participants: first level graduates in geology, physics, mathematics and engineering or with an equivalent or higher qualification, also obtained abroad, and recognised as suitable, are admitted.

Partner: University of Trieste.

Purpose: to provide advanced skills to operate in the field of geological and geophysical services for oil exploration and production.

Duration: 2 academic years

Programme: attendance of courses at the University of Trieste with seminars given by Eni experts, field trips and the possibility of taking optional Data Science and Scientific Computing exams. Selected students will also be able to undertake internships in order to prepare their Master's thesis.

Participants: holders of bachelor's degrees in scientific faculties or with an equivalent or higher educational qualification, also obtained abroad, and recognised as suitable.

For more information on the programme, the admission requirements and the registration procedure, visit the University of Trieste website.

Partner: University of Milan.

Purpose: to provide advanced skills on the natural processes of geological systems to operate in the field of subsurface characterisation for the identification and sustainable use of geo-resources.

Duration: 2 academic years

Programme: attendance of courses at the University of Milan, taught entirely in English, with seminars given by Eni experts. Selected students will also be able to undertake internships in order to prepare their Master's thesis.

Participants: holders of bachelor's degrees in scientific faculties or with an equivalent or higher educational qualification, also obtained abroad, and recognised as suitable.

Partner: University of Perugia

Purpose: to provide advanced skills to operate in the field of geological services for oil exploration and sustainable production of renewable and fossil energy sources.

Duration: 2 academic years

Programme: attendance of courses at the University of Perugia, entirely in English, with seminars given by Eni experts and field activities. Selected students will also be able to undertake internships in order to prepare their Master's thesis.

Participants: holders of bachelor's degrees in scientific faculties or with an equivalent or higher educational qualification, also obtained abroad, and recognised as suitable.

Partner: University of Pavia

Duration: 2,5 academic years

Programme: The course has a total duration of 5 semesters (2.5 years). Selected students will have the opportunity to carry out a curricular internship for 2 semesters in Eni (12 months) in order to realize their thesis.

Partecipants: A programmed number of students, graduates of first level, for each academic year and enrolled in the Master PLUS in Geosciences for sustainable resources course of interest to Eni, will be selected by the Teaching Council of the individual degree courses and by Eni, both on the basis of the results obtained at curricular level and through individual interviews of a motivational nature for the assignment of the company internship.
