Short Description of the Program

Energy resources occupy primary position in Ukrainian economic development. This fact sets additional requirements to the prospects of oil and gas industry development, specifically- personnel competency.

Higher education in the educational program “Oil and Gas Geology” places an emphasis on forming and developing professionalism in the field of oil and gas geology, specifically – ability to solve complicated specialized tasks and practical problems in the professional work in the Earth Science field at training, using modern theoretical knowledge and research methods.

Educational Program “Oil and Gas Geology” was developed by the operations group of National University “Yuri Kondratyuk Poltava Polytechnic” Educational and Research Institute of Oil and Gas. The group members are qualified professionals, as well as leading experts from various oil and gas production and geological exploration organizations and establishments who specialize in the accordant field and provide consultation and cooperation. Educational Program focuses on training specialists who have extensive knowledge in oil and gas geology, oil and gas exploration and surveying, capable of performing theoretical estimation and experimentation work, use informational technology, manage projects, organize project and production departments’ work, developing and designing oil and gas production.

The program is done according to the modern tendencies in scientific and industrial aspects of the field, as well as oil and gas geologist’s obligations and responsibilities in establishments, organizations or scientific research institutes to increase compatibility of our graduates on the job market and promote their professional and scientific development.
