Senegal delegation impressed by oil and gas training at FVC

Forth Valley College welcomed a delegation from Senegal-based polytechnic college ESP-UCAD to their Falkirk Campus this week (29 November 2016).

The group of professors were interested in finding out more about oil and gas training provision available at Forth Valley College.

ESP-UCAD are looking to play a lead role in responding to the growing oil and gas industry in Senegal by adding specialist training modules to their existing engineering provision.

The visit to Forth Valley College was part of a wider fact finding mission (28 Nov – 3 Dec) organised by Scottish Development International (SDI) to enable ESP-UCAD to find out about the wide range of oil and gas training provision available from institutions across Scotland.  

The ESP-UCAD group included Assistant Professor for Chemical Engineering Cheikhou Kane, Assistant Professor for Biology Engineering Cheikh Momar and Assistant Professor for Electrochemistry Demo Koita.  They were accompanied by Andy Monaghan from the SDI Oil & Gas Team and were met by Forth Valley College’s International Development Manager Andrew Campbell.

Andrew said:

“We were delighted to welcome the delegation from ESP-UCAD.  The growth in the oil and gas industry in Senegal, and the potential for new oil and gas companies, means there is real scope to work in partnership with this well-established technical college.

“ESP-UCAD were impressed with our capabilities and strengths and were also interested in our strategic partnership work with Heriot-Watt University.”
