The Future Petroleum Engineers Forum

China University of Petroleum, Beijing (CUP), is located in a scenic region of tourist interest in Changping District, Beijing, about 5 miles to the Ming Tombs and 15 miles to the Great Wall. CUPB offers not only engineering programs in oil and gas science including chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, geoscience and mechanical and electronic engineering, but also, in computer science, business management and Chinese Language Study programs of a full range from diploma, bachelor and master to doctoral programs.

The main goal of this short visit was to strengthen relations with Beijing’s SPE SC and other student chapters from all over the world and get ideas and inputs about hosting a forum as a SPE Student Chapter. The well organized FPEF was rounded up by a cultural night to strengthen cultural exchange where all participant were asked to dress in traditional costumes and each chapter to prepare one or two shows. Excursions were planned that offered all students at the last days a day tour in Beijing as well a trip to the great wall.

This student conference visit shall serve as a great motivation for our current and future members of our SPE Student Chapter Leoben to participate in our events and also in the organization of such trips and increase the connection among other chapters.
