Student Technical Congress (STC)

What is the STC?


The „Student Technical Congress“ is a 2-day technical conference organized by the German Section of the SPE and their associated student chapters. The conference is primarily designed for students who are welcome to present their research. It is connected with a mini job-fair catering to petroleum engineering , drilling engineering, geothermal energy and related geoscience students. Since the STC 2017 a pre-program on the day before was established, to gain scientific knowledge related to the host location or to participate in social events.

The STC offers a unique networking opportunity both for students and industry representatives on a private and informative scale. Therefore don’t hesitate to participate at the STC 2019!

Why should you attend?

As a student:

  • To learn about upstream research done elsewhere.
  • To network with other students.
  • To learn about job opportunities.

As an industry-representative:

  • To meet Petroleum and Geoscience students close to graduation
  • To find out about the topics researched in academia
