Mentor Supports Australian Energy Market with Scholarship
International oil and gas resourcing specialist Mentor IMC Group has awarded funding to three students to support their engineering studies at Curtin University of Technology in Australia. The scholarships form part of Mentors ongoing commitment to nurturing young engineering talent and encouraging gifted students into the local oil and gas industry.
Mentor awarded finance from their prestigious scholarship fund to three students including Jamie Cole and Tye McKain,18-year-olds studying for a degree in petroleum engineering, and 35-year-old Majed Al Naser who is completing a Masters in petroleum engineering.
Australias oil, gas and LNG market has boomed over recent years. However, the industry as a whole is facing resourcing challenges. As the sector grows and skilled population ages and reaches retirement age, there are far greater employment opportunities than available expertise. To combat this challenge Mentor set up the scholarship fund at Curtin University.
The Mentor scholarship fund forms part of Mentor IMC Groups long-term strategy to support the development of the Australian energy market. John Richards, Mentor CEO, said: The government and oil majors need to work together to combat the resourcing challenges the oil and gas industry faces. Incentives such as Mentors scholarship fund help nurture skilled and talented individuals who wish to pursue an engineering career. We also hope that by investing money into Curtin University students, we help them to stay in the area after they graduate and develop their careers by working within the oil and gas sector within Australia and beyond.
