SYNOPSIS

Oil, gas, and mined minerals consumption is expected to rise over the world to fulfill the need for automobile and aircraft fuels, petrochemicals and fuel to replace coal in power generation. Many people are unaware that oil, gas and mined minerals are high-tech, complex industries that drive innovation and influence practically every field in our aspect of life. Natural gas, oil and mined minerals are the foundations of everything we need and love on a daily basis as they are among the world’s most valuable commodities, they can be found in practically everything, including cell phone, cosmetics, chemicals and fertilizers, fuel for transportation and even solar panels. Professionals with a diverse range of experiences, abilities and interests are crucial in the burgeoning and fascinating oil, gas and mining industry. Challenging environments in which the industry operates, require advanced knowledge and timely introduction of new technology that demand engineers in the industry to continuously learn to upgrade their skills and competencies. Thus academicians that support the industries have to understand the oil, gas and mining human resources need so that the graduates produced match the industry skill set.

The professional on the other can be enlightened on what the academic offers for them to enhance their professional endeavor.
