Gary Jones, bp’s regional president for Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey, today paid one of his regular visits to BHOS extending his congratulations to the university on their 10th anniversary and addressing the teaching staff and students to share his views on the future of energy and the skills required to be part of it.
Today’s event and overall cooperation with BHOS is part of bp and its co-venturers’ commitment to supporting the country’s efforts to enhance the capacity of local higher educational institutions.
Mr. Jones also toured the world-class process simulation laboratory established in BHOS by bp and its co-venturers in 2020. The fully equipped laboratory is in support of the university’s efforts to build modern educational infrastructure with the ultimate objective to help students smoothly step from university to industry.
During the tour, Mr. Jones said: “Working closely with local universities to help them raise the quality of their educational process – both teaching and learning, is at the core of our social initiatives. We are pleased to see that our joint educational programmes with BHOS offer great opportunities for students to receive international standard education and enhance the university’s overall ability to provide high quality education”.
