European Gas Engineer-joint study program (EGE-jsp)
Proceedings Publication Date
The European energy market is constantly developing in response to the fact that natural gas is becoming a primary energy source for the future. Therefore also production, transportation, distribution and use of natural gas will become an increasingly important factor in solving the problem of future energy supply. As an integrated part of the solution of these problems are also the unification and improved cooperation within the European universities dealing with education of candidates for the natural gas industry. The aim of the group of European Universities is to initiating a European Gas Engineer -joint study program (EGE-jsp). The purpose of the EGE is to structure and possibly enhance the quality of education, on the master level, in the field of natural gas engineering. The EGE program is intended to unify education in this field at the member universities, and to internationalize the standards of master candidates, related to both theoretical and practical knowledge on the highest possible level, in combination with abilities for continued and life-long learning. This will facilitate education on the master level, and to produce candidates for the European international gas industry as well as for governmental and other regulative institutions.
