We work with many prestige universities abroad supporting highly specialized training programs for new generations.
Eni Scholarships in partnership with Luiss – “Sub-Saharan Africa Project”
With the aim of promoting human capital and contributing to the growth of the African continent, Eni supports training programs for the young by affording them the opportunity to gain know-how and learn about best practice through studying at Luiss. Eni and Luiss are offering scholarships to students from Angola, Congo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria to attend master degree programs taught in English. The program envisages the award of a full-ride scholarship to each admitted student, covering tuition fees and the total cost of bed and board in Rome during the 2 academic years.
Partnerships with international universities
With the University of Oxford, we have stipulated an agreement whereby each year a number of scholarships are assigned for Masters and PhD reserved for students from sub-Saharan African countries of interest to Eni.
Since 2018, we started a collaboration with the Kazakh British Technical University (KBTU) in Almaty in designing a Master’s Degree in Petroleum Engineering, providing business and academic experts in teaching.
Since September 2019, the KBTU activates a Master’s course in “Industrial Project Management and Engineering”, supported by Eni, with company lectures on technical and economic/financial subjects.
In Kazakhstan, since 2018 we supported a study programme devised by the Society of Petroleum Engineers for courses in Petroleum Engineering promoted by Satbayev University of Almaty under the educational direction of the Colorado School of Mines, through corporate lectures.
We started a project with Strathclyde University of Glasgow through a two-year agreement that brings together Eni's industrial know-how and the University of Strathclyde’s expertise as a leader in the renewable energy sector, with the aim to analyze the skills needed by workeforce with experience in traditional energy fields for the entry into the green energy sector, particularly offshore wind energy.
As part of the energy transition, Eni and the University of Strathclyde will work together to promote a new approach to facilitate jobs creation and professional opportunities for the wind sector.
