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 oil and gas 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.
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 invests significantly in the training of its employees both in Italy and abroad, as well as initiatives to reinforce the skills of partner universities, with a view to strengthening autonomy in the training of professionals in the oil and gas sector. In 2013, in Mozambique, Eni launched the Eni Professors@UEM project in collaboration with the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) in Maputo, with the aim of training eight Mozambican “Eni Junior Professors” (Eni JPs) to form a new Gas Engineering faculty. The training programmes are run in Mozambique and at highly specialised partner universities - the University of Perugia, Turin Polytechnic, the China University of Petroleum in Beijing, and with the help of experts from the University of Texas.
Also in Mozambique, ECU is involved in the implementation of the Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering at the University E. Mondlane in Maputo which will be attended by 24 young trainees from Eni East Africa, an integral part of a project for the selection and training of 200 young local graduates run by Eni Corporate University. In the context of the Eni Students Project, in collaboration with University College London, in 2014 two initiatives were organised in Mozambique (UEM, Maputo and UniLurio, Pemba) involving more than 200 high school students from Maputo and the Province of Cabo Delgado. In particular some selected students spent two of study at universities, to learn basic knowledge about energy and the environment, with a particular focus on geology. The idea behind the project (already run in India and Ghana) is to encourage students to choose to study subjects at university that are related to the oil and gas industry.
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 oil and gas industry. Requests must be sent by email, highlighting the subject and content of the dissertation, to: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 several prestigious 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.
