  4. Brief statistics of petroleum education at Norwegian University of Science and Technology • established in 1973 • 2000 graduated sivilingeniørs and M.Sc.’s during 1974-2005 • 100 graduated Ph.D.´s candidates during 1977-2005 • around 80-90 M.Sc.’s graduate per year • around 10 Ph.D.´s graduate per year • currently around 90 full-time teachers, staff, researchers • around 300 students enrolled at upper B.Sc. and M.Sc. Levels

  5. History of Petroleum Program Diploma Course 1980-1993“Petroleum Exploration and Production”Separate English-language course for non-Norwegian studentsMore than 200 persons completed the course M.Sc. Programs 1993-current“Petroleum Engineering” & “Petroleum Geoscience”English-language programs where non-Norwegian students are integrated with Norwegian students So far, more than 600 non-Norwegians havehave enrolled(and more than 1000 Norwegians)

  6. International M.Sc. and Ph.D. Programs • English Language Instruction • 40% non-Norwegian Students in M.Sc. Program • 50% non-Norwegians in Ph.D. Program

  7. International Educational Collaboration • Student exchange agreements with European universities • Student exchange agreement with University of Texas, Texas A&M University, Colorado School of Mines • Student exchange agreement with Univeristy of Campinas, Brazil • Student exchange agreement with University of New South Wales • NORAD-financed petroleum education for students from Asia and Afrika (12 per year) • Government-financed petroleum education for students from Eastern Europe and developing countries (15 per year) • Educational collaboration with Pomor University, Russia 150 students trained during 1996-2004 • Training ageement with NIOC, Iran for education and research. 50 Iranians will get M.Sc. degrees at NTNU 2000-2005 • Training agreements with Venezuela og Aserbaijan • Diskusjoner om utdanningssamarbeid med Algeria, Angola, Libya, Nigeria, Russland

  8. A typical classroom in 2004 • 15-20 nationalities, languages, cultures...

  9. The M.Sc. programs in Petroleum Engineering and Petroleum Geoscience at NTNUranked as # 1 in Norway by an evaluation committee appointed by NORAD May 2000 #1

  10. Profile of the M.Sc. program at NTNU 30 professors involved 50-60 Ph.D. students available as teaching assistantsAn international class of 80-90 M.Sc. students per year Research-based programAdvanced laboratories No. 1 on research quality (NFR evaluation 2004)Multidisciplinary environment Close collaboration with Norwegian oil and gas industry

  11. High Performance Visualization and Computing Huge amounts of data and demanding computational tasks are typical for many of the petroleum disciplines. Through a close collaboration with Norsk Hydro, the department has been able to install a floor-to-ceiling Virtual Reality laboratory, with a dedicated 32-processor SGI computer. The laboratory is used primarily for visualization of seismic data and reservoir fluid flow. Other applications are under development. We have close collaboration with other departments at NTNU, such as medicine and computer science. Modern Facilities

  12. Petrox Geological Field Courses Through close collaboration with Statoil, Norsk Hydro, BP, and Shell several new field courses for the M.Sc. students have been developed over the past few years. The courses take place at Svalbard, in England, in the Pyrenees and in Oman. Svalex Pyrex Omanex Industry-Sponsored Field Courses Integrated in M.Sc. Program

  13. Group-based multidisciplinary learning processes Considerable resources are invested in modern learning methods and technology over the past few years (PBL, multi-disciplinary groups, web-based learning). Through close collaboration with Norwegian oil companies, in particular with Statoil, large amounts of field data and realistic field problems have become freely available for education and research. In addition resources for investment in modern equipment and facilities for the development of inspiring and effective learning environments have been made available. Gullfaks-PBL Svalex e-learning in petroleum Multi-Disciplinary Groups

  14. Research collaboration with industry • Long-term collaboration agreement with Norsk Hydro • Long-term collaboration agreement with Statoil • Long-term collaboration agreement with Shell • Long-term collaboration agreement with TOTAL • Long-term collaboration agreement with Enterprise Oil (Shell) • (Long-term collaboration agreement with BP) • Individual project agreements with most oil companies

  15. Challenges of establishing petroleum programs in the South Infrastructure Advanced laboratories need to be established ProfessorsFaculty members need to be developed Research activitiesEducation at M.Sc. and Ph.D. levels need to be based on active research programs Industrial relationshipsEngineering programs need to have an industrial relationship International exposureAn international perspective should be implemented

  16. The requirements of establishing petroleum programs in the South Faculty members The development of faculty members and research activities in the South include education of Ph.D.’s and active research collaboration in order to qualify as faculty members. InfrastructureBasic infrastructure can be purchased for money. Advance research infrastructure needs to be developed in parallel with the development of research activities. Industrial relationshipNorway is unique in terms of collaboration between academia and industry. To develop such relationships require time and patience.

  17. The requirements of establishing petroleum programs in the South – cont’d International exposure Norway actively promotes sending students at higher levels abroad for one semester or two for broadening of perspective and exposure to culture and research. This should be equally important for students in the South. Time perspective and costsIn short terms, costs will increase; in long terms, 10 years ++, costs will probably decrease

  18. Current activities at NTNUaimed at development of petroleum programs in the South Sandwich programs NTNU is in discussions with several institutions in the South for planning possible sandwich programs. Currently, we are in a screening fase to select 2 or 3 institution for development of a closer relationship:-U Augustinho Neto-Angola-Bangladesh U of Engineering and Technology (BUET)-Indian School of Mines -Maharashtra Inst. of Techn.-Inst. Of Techn.U of Indonesia-Kathmandu U -U of BeninU of Uyo-South Afr. Petr.Studies-U of Dar es Salam-Makerere U-Hanoi U of Mining and Geology-HoChiMinh City U of Tech.

  19. The NTNU & SINTEF Campus in Trondheim • More than 5000 researchers, professors and staff • More than 20000 students • One of the largest campuses for research & education in Europe
