Professorial Chairs

In enhancing the learning experience for its students, UTP provides an opportunity for the industry to establish and sponsor Professorial Chairs. This is part of a long-term programme that involves collaborations between UTP and major oil and gas industry players, among others, to pave the way for enhanced relationships between the industry players and academia. This is integral in the creation of a pool of educated and trained individuals. Such collaborations will enable UTP to tap the expertise and knowledge of its partners, which would then be imparted to the students. It also contributes towards UTP's efforts in strengthening its position in research and development (R&D), one of the university's core focus areas.

Currently, UTP has 4 professorial chairs namely:

  • Schlumberger Chair in Petroleum Engineering
  • Shell Chair in Petroleum Geoscience
  • Mitsubishi Chair in Green Technology
  • Technip Chair in Deepwater Structure & Subsea Technology
  • Sapura Kencana Chair in Deepwater Drilling & Construction Technology
