Master of Science program in Petroleum Engineering

Overview

The Eni Project offers international students the possibility to receive a scholarship and other benefits to graduate from the Politecnico di Torino attending a Master of Science program in Petroleum Engineering.

The project, promoted by the Politecnico di Torino and financed by Eni – Exploration & Production Division and Eni Corporate University, will offer for the 2010/2011 academic year scholarships to international students, mainly from Angola, Ghana, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Pakistan and Turkmenistan.

The length of the course is 2 years full time and corresponds to 120 ECTS credits. All the courses are entirely held in English.

The activities will begin in September 2010.

Academic requirements

In order to be admitted into the Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering program, applicants must possess a university degree equivalent to a Bachelor of Science degree, which is approximately equivalent to three or four years after secondary school, depending on the number of secondary school years.

Application is open to students who:

■ are not Italian citizens
■ are not older than 32 years (by 31/12/2010)
■ have an adequate knowledge of the English language, preferably demonstrated by an international certification
■ are not already enrolled at the Politecnico di Torino before the 2010/2011 academic year
■ are not recipients of other scholarships, Italian or foreign

Selection criteria

Applicants will be selected based on their previous academic career and on their Curriculum Vitae.

Amount of the scholarship

■ The gross amount of the Eni Project scholarship is 10.000 Euro per year (20.000 Euro for the complete period). The exact net sum is dependent upon the individual tax conditions of each student, which can be verified only upon the arrival of the student.
■ The amount of the scholarship will not be increased in case the student will need more time to graduate than indicated.
■ The allocation of the scholarship is dependent upon the submission, within 10 days from the arrival in Italy of the student, of the original documentation, which must correspond with the documentation attached to the online form (see the “Selection outcomes” section below).
■ Payment of the scholarship occurs periodically. The first instalment is dependent upon the possession of the relevant documentation (residence permit, Italian fiscal code, and bank account in the name of the scholarship recipient), all obtainable upon arrival in Italy; for this reason, the first instalment is not paid at the moment of arrival at the Politecnico di Torino, but in the course of the following month.
