Petroleum engineer? Gas engineer? SPE Miskolc Chapter is waiting for you

The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is an international professional organization devoted to the support of petroleum engineers.

Currently it has 165,000 members from which 74,000 are students. 

A Student Chapters operates in the University of Miskolc, in the Oil and Gas Institute.

The main activities of the chapter are:

  • Assisting the petroleum engineer students in their studies,
  • After school lectures, workshops, company presentations,
  • Organizing field trips,
  • Attending international and domestic conferences as well as supporting students getting there.

The SPE Miskolc Student Chapter also cooperates with such known companies like MOL, Natural Gas Storage Plc and Oil & Gas Development Plc. This ensures the professional development of students and our members, as they provide opportunities for participating in summer practices.


Helping our foreign students is also a top priority for us. They can contact us with every kind of issues and we will try to do our best to make them comfortable in their new environment and in the industry.

In our future plans, we would like to strengthen our relationship with other professional organizations inside and outside the Faculty and the University. We also like to improve our ‘after-lesson’ educational program which is held in English and organize more field trips where professional guides describe the technological issues not only in Hungarian but in English language too regarding the increasing number of the foreign students in our University.
