Two groups of students, from Iraq and Jamaica, have graduated from Siberian Federal University. Iraqi students completed the undergraduate programme in Oil and Gas Business. They learnt Russian at the Preparatory Department and then had training in field specific disciplines. The four-year programme was focused on oil and gas field development and operation; the practice included job placements in the home country where students collected data for their theses. Some graduates want to continue their studies at SibFU planning to apply for the programme in Oil and Gas Field Management.
Students from Jamaica also completed a SibFU undergraduate programme. They are certified engineers in such fields as mechanical engineering, electric engineering and utility system and thermal engineering control. They studied at SibFU’s Non-Ferrous Metals and Materials Science School and Polytechnic School and had practice at Krasnoyarsk Aluminum Plant and Achinsk Alumina Refinery. All students got excellent grades for their qualifying research papers; five graduated with honours.
Students from Algeria and Iraq completed graduate programmes at South Ural State University’s Institute of Architecture and Construction. For two years, they studied building design, construction technology and structural engineering and engaged in research. The graduates are preparing to return home to start a career.
