Abstract

Petroleum Engineering remains an important area of study in our world and would continue to do so for the foreseeable future even with the advent of renewable energy and drive towards a more sustainable energy source. With this in mind, maximising the relationship that currently exist between the academia and industry is very important in order to produce the next generation of petroleum experts capable of providing innovation and change to drive this sector towards meeting the energy demands of the world. This paper provides a reflective analysis on the processes needed by both academia and industry to ensure they both work towards empowering future petroleum engineers to maximise the opportunities within this sector. By reviewing the academic curriculum and skills needed by petroleum engineers and also examining the limitations currently existing in the relationship between the oil and gas industry and academics, the paper offers ways by which a mutually beneficial relationship could be achieved.
