UOB wins an Erasmus plus f​unded project “GOPELC"

GOPELC stands for "Gas and Oil Processing, a Lebanese European Cooperation”. Partners are from Romania (Universitatea Petrol Si Gaza Ploeisti), Sweden (Kungliga Tekniska Hoegskolan), France (Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne), and Lebanon (Lebanese University, NDU, BAU, and Ministry of Higher education).
The total budget is of 563,656 Euros and the duration is of 3 years (2016-2018). The main objectives are to address the main issues that the Lebanese society and the Lebanese Higher educational system are facing: Energy problems, Gas and Oil offshore recently discovered in Mediterranean Sea, and to provide qualified professional resources capable of sustaining and managing the gas and oil industry development.

The professors of the Chemical Engineering Department are participating in the workshops organized by the GOPELC project that take place in Romania, France and Sweden. In addition, internships for Chemical Engineering students will take place in European countries and will be paid by the project.
