TotalEnergies Qatar and University of Doha for Science and Technology (UDST) recently partnered to promote cooperation between the two organizations.

The agreement, which was signed by Matthieu Bouyer, Country Chair of TotalEnergies Qatar and Managing Director of TotalEnergies EP Qatar, and Dr. Salem Al Naemi, President of UDST, sets a precedent for more collaboration between UDST and TotalEnergies Qatar, to enrich Qatar's knowledge-based economy.

Bridging the Gap between Industry and Academia in Qatar's Energy Sector

The agreement provides a framework for several projects between the two organizations such as work placements for UDST students and academic staff, and potential opportunities for applied research.

Furthermore, TotalEnergies, a global energy industry leader, can serve as a mentor and resource to students by providing practical applications from areas such as exploration and production, refining and petrochemicals, lubricants and renewable energy, and research and innovation, all of which the Company is actively involved in Qatar.

The collaboration with UDST is an important step in efforts to enrich the local workforce that will contribute to the fast-growing energy sector of Qatar. TotalEnergies Qatar will benefit from having access to UDST's talented pool of graduates and will also help shape the next generation of business professionals. UDST, in turn, will benefit from TotalEnergies' industry expertise and knowledge, therefore bridging the gap between theory and practice.

“TotalEnergies Qatar is committed to fostering industry-academia partnerships that can be applied across all sectors, while also ensuring that we are meeting the needs of our stakeholders, including universities.

This collaboration with UDST serves a dual purpose: it allows the students to access TotalEnergies Qatar's skilled workforce, and leverages our TAMKEEN program which supports the development of Qatari talent.

Dr. Salem Al Naemi, President of UDST

With this partnership, we aim to further pursue growth and innovation opportunities that will benefit both our organizations and the wider community.

Our partnership with UDST is an excellent illustration of how the TotalEnergies TAMKEEN program can enrich students and young professionals with new skills and competencies through engagement, training, and career opportunities. We are dedicated to fostering and developing Qatari talent so that they can play an active role in the energy industry in Qatar and beyond...' Matthieu Bouyer, TotalEnergies Country Chair in Qatar, and Managing Director TotalEnergies EP Qatar

“At UDST, we believe that great partnerships are the key to unlocking the potential of our students and driving progress and creativity that benefits society as a whole.

That's why we've chosen to partner with TotalEnergies Qatar, a leader in the global energy industry. Together, we are committed to creating new knowledge, technologies, and solutions that make a real difference. This collaboration is a long-term investment that will help all parties in the long run.

UDST is a leading applied sciences university that provides students with unparalleled access to real work in the industry. By collaborating with TotalEnergies, we will support UDST's mission of creating a skilled and sustainable workforce in Qatar by giving students invaluable exposure to real-world challenges and opportunities in the oil and gas sector...” Dr. Salem Al Naemi, President of the University of Doha for Science and Technology (UDST)

Incorporating Real-World Experience into the Education of Future Leaders

As another component of this partnership, UDST will expand its student participation to the Al Reyada development program* , thus bringing together academics and business professionals to address energy-related topics. This program is part of TotalEnergies' TAMKEEN broader initiative, which aims to develop local talent and human capacity through education, training, and development.
