(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Hamad bin Khalifa University (HBKU), a member of #Qatar Foundation, hosted an interactive lecture session with Wim Thomas, Shell's Chief Energy Adviser recently



In a press statement HBKU yesterday said that the session was particularly pertinent to the students of HBKU's Executive Master in Energy and Resources as it focused on Shell's Global Energy Scenarios. The scenarios analysed the developing trends in economy, politics and energy over the next half a century. They also looked at the impact of both the boom in the world's population as well as the increase of people living above the poverty line, and considered how these dynamics affect global energy demand



HBKU's Executive Master's in Energy and Resources is a 16-month interdisciplinary programme, which provides an innovative educational approach to the field of Energy and Natural Resources through integrating the discplines of geopolitics, public policy, technology, finance, management and strategy. The programme is developed in partnership with Georgetown University, HEC Paris, and Texas A&M University




The students found the interactive lecture session with Thomas, the energy expert, very inspiring and useful. Muneera Al Qahtani, a student of the programme, said: "This event showed us how oil and gas companies view scenarios that we study in the classroom, and how they are actually implemented in real life. It also gave us the opportunity to think and figure out where we see ourselves working after completing the course, in a way that we can add value and help solve our company's and our community's challenges.



The event is another example of the dynamic and engaging intellectual opportunities HBKU presents to its students, both inside and outside the classroom, in collaboration with the corporate world
