Special Session 4: University Research

Room 403/404

The offshore industry is faced with many technological challenges in order to extract hydrocarbons in more remote and hostile environments, and to continue production of existing fields through integrity management of facilities. Meeting these challenges requires that universities prepare students to contribute to projects at a cutting edge early in their careers.

We invite participants in this session to discuss how their curricula and research programs are tuned to industry needs. What kind of collaboration has been effective and perhaps what has not. What makes for a successful collaboration?
