“The biggest achievement from this grant is actually having the program starting. Without the grant we wouldn’t of had the national curriculum for oil and gas engineering with renewable energy at diploma level.
And I can honestly say that all other developments started afterwards. other grants wouldn’t have been possible without the initial project from the Foundation. And the biggest achievement I would say, it changed the direction of our vision in oil and gas engineering. That you cannot start from low. We had to go at a higher level. It is now geared at getting people hands on experience.
Also, we were able to meet competent staff from the oil and gas industry through the Hanze University Foundation. Now we have very close contact with staff from the industry to exchange ideas and now we are able to move forward.”
