“CdoGEO is successfully developing international cooperation exporting additional professional education of KFU and paving the way to international markets in the educational and research areas. We are expanding the map of cooperation with other countries: last year we entered Latvia and continued our cooperation with Cuba. This year, we have prepared two programs “Applied geophysics new technologies” and “Geophysical well logging method” for the University of Petroleum China and we are implementing refresher courses under the “Seismic facies analysis” program for specialists of JV VIETSOPETRO (Vietnam). Previously, we trained our students from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Belarus, Cuba, Latvia, Iraq. We also trained students as part of the Russian departmental target program for training engineering personnel in China, France, Germany, Switzerland. We have implemented programs with the participation of international partners from the USA, Canada and the UAE,” said Ildus Chukmarov.
