ALL ABOUT TOTAL EDUCATION IN BRAZIL
Total is active in Brazil across many different parts of the energy industry, from Exploration & Production activities, to renewable energy and lubricants, as well as Marketing & Services. More than 300 employees work for Total in Brazil, promoting sustainable and responsible energy in the country. Our educational projects include Total Professeurs Associés (TPA) courses as well as partnerships with universities.
At UNICAMP (State University of Campinas) and at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, the Total Professeurs Associés (TPA) offers week-long intensive courses for undergraduate and Masters students in petroleum or chemical engineering. We also participate in career forums and university events, such as the Petroleum Engineers Week organized by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).
Professor Daniel Dumas reflecting on the benefits of the Total Professeurs Associés (TPA) program says: “I believe that TPA is a source of practical insight, which many students still lack after graduation. Sharing experience from industry helps them be better prepared for their future careers. TPA teachers are also ambassadors for Total and I believe that when you are a TPA teacher you are constantly inspired by the next generation!”
