Matriculation ceremony 2015-2016

Matriculation ceremony in the Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical University of Oil and Gas

On the 1st of September, in spite of hot weather, the theatrized matriculation ceremony took place on the stadium of the Ivano Frankivsk national technical university of oil and gas and gathered a lot of students, their parents, professors, teachers, honoured guests and graduates of different years.

Western Ukraine is the center of the European petroleum industry. The industrial production of oil and gas in this region began in the 19thcentury. That’s why the university founded in 1967 (national - since 2001) in Ivano-Frankivsk, aims at training specialists in oil and gas industry. Near 500 000 graduates implement all significant projects in oil and gas industry, i.e. creation of the largest gas-transport system in the world, designing and building of long-distance pipelines, working in oil fields in Ukraine, western Siberia and other regions in different countries.

Today, our graduates solve one of the most important and urgent problems – provision of energy security of the country. Energy security in this country is our goal. A way to achieve it is to get the qualitative education provided by the university, which is the pledge of success of both, the whole country struggling for independence and personal and professional development of our graduates.
