RMU Partners Technip

RMU-pixThe Regional Maritime University (RMU) and Technip  Ghana have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)  to share knowledge on the burgeoning  oil and gas  industry to enable the students meet the challenges in the sector.

The agreement which was signed on August 28, this year, was the formalisation of active collaboration which has been going on between the two institutions for some time. 

A statement issued and copied to The Ghanaian Times, said the Rector of RMU, Capt. Aaron Obeng Turkson   and Mr. Stephen Sole, the Country Manager of Technip Ghana, pledged their commitments to work together for the next three years to build the country’s oil and gas sector by engaging in various capacity building activities.

“This collaboration has been ongoing for the past few months without key milestones. There have been various lectures on industrial practices in oil and gas from Technip to students and staff of RMU,” it said.

According to the statement, Technip has facilitated the review of a  new Offshore Engineering programme to be offered by RMU students which was  necessitated by a network of more than 70 Engineering  universities: “N+1”  network.

It said that was an innovative pro-gramme with options for Sub-sea and Pipeline Engineering.

It further stated that Technip would continue to provide the missing link in theoretical based university education: the practical engineering experience.

It added that Technip would set up a business incubator in RMU to assist final year students to undertake innovative and entrepreneurial projects through training, coaching and mentoring.

As part of the agreement, Technip would offer places for selected students to undertake collaborative research projecs, thus enhancing their chances of employment in Technip.
