We organise post-graduate Masters degrees internally and have established partnerships with universities for the creation of targeted training programmes.
At Eni we need highly specialised professionals. This is why in 1957 we launched the Master MEDEA (Management and Economics of Energy and the Environment) and collaborate with universities to create specific training programmes that include the know-how and technical skills of the energy industry.
The educational programmes are characterised by a close connection with our business – the sharing of the latest knowledge in the field, lectures by Eni experts and internships at the company. The oil industry is complex and evolving rapidly, so these programmes are essential to ensure a new generation of professionals who can make an immediate contribution to Eni’s growth. Over time we have built a network of relationships with prestigious national and international universities. Through Eni Corporate University we promote and run a series of training projects related to the key activities of the company’s business: further degrees, Masters programmes and training projects specifically for graduates from non-European countries of strategic interest to Eni.
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 5 scholarships to students from Angola, Congo, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mozambique and Nigeria to attend bachelor and master degree programs taught in English for the 2019/2020 academic year. 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 3 academic years for bachelor’s degrees or during the 2 academic years for the master’s degrees.

We work with universities to build training courses aimed at highly specialised new generations.
To support these collaborative programmes, we offer Italian and international university students between 100 and 150 scholarships each year. The scholarships are very popular and are allocated after a rigorous selection process. We have also established a partnership with the University of Oxford that every year awards scholarships for the graduate programme in African Studies at St Antony’s College (Centre for African Studies). For information on the initiatives of Eni Corporate University, consult the competition notices section on Eni’s contribution to postgraduate degrees, Masters programmes promoted by Eni with universities, Scuola Mattei and Master MEDEA.
Eni, with the support of Eni Corporate University, invests significantly in the training of its employees both in Italy and abroad. It also promotes projects to strengthen the skills of foreign partner universities, with the goal to consolidate autonomy in the training of future professionals in the energy sector in a perspective of local content. Recently, Eni step up further in training local resources to make its business sustainable in a broad way.
In 2014, in Mozambique, Eni, launched the Eni Junior Professors (EJP) project in collaboration with the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) in Maputo, with the aim of training eight Mozambican “Eni Junior Professors” to form a new Oil&Gas Engineering faculty. The training program has been structured and implemented in Mozambique, Italy and China by Eni Corporate University with highly specialized partner universities (the University of Perugia, Turin Polytechnic, the China University of Petroleum in Beijing), and with the participation of experts from the University of Texas. The Project ended in 2017 with the Eni JP starting their academic career at the UEM.
In Kazakhstan, starting in 2018, Eni participate to a pilot project proposing the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) curricula on Petroleum Engineering. The goal is to adapt the courses content to the oil and gas market necessity. The Nazarbayev University in Astana and Satbayev University in Almaty joined this project managed by Colorado School of Mines and will benefit of lecturers from Eni.
In the same year, Eni supported the Kazak British Technical University (KBTU) in Almaty establishing a Msc in Petroleum Engineering with the sponsoring of five scholarships and providing lecturers from Polytechnic of Turin, University of Basilicata and Eni Corporate University. The first 25 participants will graduate in September 2020.
In Ghana, Eni started, in January 2019, a strategic pilot project aiming to favor the socio economic development of the rural area of Dorma district. A training center for 800 people is under construction and a twelve-month program of training in agribusiness will be organized. This project will be implemented under the monitoring of the Ghana authorities and the leading role in training played by the KNUST University of Kumasi and with a “training the trainers” support of the Università Statale of Milan and Università Cattolica (E4Impact) of Milan.
We also offer support for the writing of dissertations for a limited number of students enrolled on degree courses in mechanical and chemical engineering in Italy and the UK, provided that the subject matter relates to the drilling and reservoir areas of the energy industry. Requests must be sent by email, highlighting the subject and content of the dissertation, to: email@example.com. A response will be given only to proposals that are accepted. Please do not use this mailbox to send your CV or enquire about job opportunities.
A curricular internship (available during university studies) is a learning experience that is normally offered to those following second level degree courses and Masters courses organised by Eni with universities.
Extracurricular internships are available after university studies are completed. These opportunities and the related application requirements are published on the job opportunities page.
With the aim of supporting students in their post-diploma choices, Eni organises the Think About Tomorrow initiative, which is open to students enrolled in their third, fourth and fifth year of high school and takes place at the company’s offices in Rome and San Donato Milanese. The initiative is based on an interactive formula not only to inform young people about the current situation of the job market, but also to stimulate the comparison of the attitudes and personal skills necessary to enter and integrate into the world of work.
During the event young people talk about their academic and professional paths and a recruiter from Eni Corporate University provides guidance and advice on how to succeed in a job interview.
In 2016, our Pink About Tomorrow event was organised during a part of STEM Month known as “Female students want to count”. The objective of the initiative - promoted by the Italian Ministry of Education, in collaboration with the Department for Equal Opportunities - is to promote events and initiatives to increase the interest of young female students towards STEM - academic disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. During the Eni event, which was held over two days in Rome and San Donato Milanese, Eni hosted an audience of female students in their last two years of high school, promoting technical and scientific studies to young women who usually choose humanities-based courses and career paths.
