The Education Day is an initiative to introduce students to the discipline of petroleum engineering, and the industry in general. About 100 high school students with keen interest in science, who may consider majoring in Petroleum and related engineering programmes when they enter university, will be invited to attend.
A number of industry professionals have been invited to share their experience with students through talks on topics of general interest and relevance to the industry. Following the talks, the students will be given a guided tour of the exhibition area. They will be able to see first-hand the high-end technology used by engineers and the sophisticated software available for solving many engineering problems. It is hoped that they will leave the conference with a better understanding of what petroleum engineers do and their role in the broader community. Equally important, they will also become aware that a petroleum engineering career is full of challenges, teamwork and responsibilities.
