Opportunities by SPE-RGIPT

SPE RGIPT student chapter takes pride in making sure that its members are well equipped with the information about the numerous facilities that our chapter has to offer. And amongst them is our plethora full of opportunities for scholarships, conferences, webinars and online certification courses. Recently SPE conducted an event on 8 October 2019 to spread awareness about the free online certification courses such as 

1. Using downhole fibre optic Temperature sensing Technology to monitor, and improve well

2. A course on how to write Technical papers.

SPE keeps informing its members about the scholarship opportunities that SPE has on offer. Also it is a matter of pride for that one of our post graduate students, Mr Saurabh Tiwary has bagged 1st position at the PhD level in the recently concluded SPE South Asia Pacific regional contest at SPE Oil and Gas India Conference held on 9-11 April 2019. SPE has also provided financial support to the students who get a chance to participate in national and international conferences.


Every year SPE RGIPT Student Chapter provide the opportunity for the PhD students to apply for Nico van Wingen Memorial Graduate Fellowship where they can be nominated for the scholarship of USD 5,000 per year, for up to four years. This Fellowship was only for the SPE Members at an official student chapter and applicant must be nominated by the SPE Student Chapter Faculty Advisor or Department Chair. So SPE RGIPT student chapter made the applicants aware about this fellowship and fulfilled their requirements of SPE membership and Chapter Faculty Adviser Nomination, thus supporting the PhD students get the scholarship.


An Education Week will be held by International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) at Dhahran, Saudi Arabia from 13 15 January 2020. It is for the benefit of the best 3rd and 4th/final year undergraduate students in science, geoscience, and engineering from qualified institutions around the world. It is anticipated that up to 100 of the best students will be selected to participate. IPTC will cover travel and accommodation expenses for the selected students. The purpose of Education Week is to provide students a clear insight into the petroleum industry, to work together on a joint assignment, and to provide opportunities for students to form new friendships and extend their network. At the same time, the students will be interacting with a number of major industry employers who are constantly looking to recruit the best talent from institutions across the globe. This year SPE RGIPT SC nominated four (4) students from the Institute, from within the top 40% of 3rd and 4th-year undergraduate students to take part in this prestigious conference.


One of our 4th year student now working as a Production Engineer in ONGC Mr. Girish Joshi (SPE student member since 2015, PE15) was selected by IPTC to be a part of their Education week to be held in Beijing 26-28th March, 2019. IPTC, one of the world’s foremost oil and gas events, is a multi-disciplinary technical event committed to the dissemination and sharing of emerging technologies, best practices and knowledge. IPTC will sponsor accommodation and travel expenses. The students get an opportunity to gain additional knowledge through panel discussions, experience sharing talk and field trips giving substantial exposure. In it’s 11th edition, students will be given a clear insight into the industry that they are about to join. To ensure that these students return to their university with a clearer vision and also to help and enrich other students with ongoing trends in the industry at their respective universities. Participating students will be assigned to work on an international project group, to share their ideas and best practices, to address issues and brainstorm solutions. At the same time, students will be interacting with a number of major industry employers who are constantly looking to recruit the best talent from institutions across the region.

We would like to thank SPE International for giving our student chapter the opportunity to nominate RGIPT students for the conference, which in turn allowed Girish to participate in the process. IPTC will sponsor all expenses involved in his participation to the conference as an SPE member of our student chapter. A big thanks to the SPE community!

With every year we hope that RGIPT has more students attending this education week
