Profile

Petroleum Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Metallurgical Engineers, Civil Engineers, Geologists, Geophysicists, Professionals in administrative areas, among others; who have been linked to work or academically in the area of hydrocarbons for a minimum period of two years.

ENGINEERING OF 

Gas & Processes

.

OBJECTIVE:

To develop strengths in the areas of operation, design and processing in gas treatment and compression plants, incorporating the different concepts and tools to effectively apply knowledge in the gas sector in Colombia, taking into account the current market and existing software, managing to develop a non-renewable resource for export, aware of the risks and safety in its handling.


.

MANAGEMENT & ECONOMICS

of Hydrocarbons

.

OBJECTIVE: To train in the areas of project management, management of oil assets, to instruct future managers with the ability to manage the resource of hydrocarbons and human talent as an integral part of the production chain, with corporate social responsibility by applying techniques of control and monitoring of projects in the different public or private institutions of the country.
