In October, the EAGE Student Fund was able to support two Student
Lecture tours, bringing our lectures to the Middle East and Russia. In total,
you were able to find our deliveries at six universities. We are please to
have been able to bring engaging courses to students at these universities.
Many thanks to Dr. Humphrey and Dr. Demyanov for their crucial role in teaching these courses!
The Middle East student lecture tour constituted four of the lectures in
October. Dr. John D. Humphrey delivered two lectures in Saudi Arabia. His
course Understanding Carbonate Mudrocks was delivered at the King
Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Tuwal and the King Fahd
University of Petroleum and Minerals in Dahran.
Two more took place at the Sultan Qaboos University of Technology and the
German University of Technology, both based in Muscat, Oman.
In addition to the lecture tour in the Middle East, two additional lectures
took place in Moscow, bringing the SLT to students of the Moscow State
University and Moscow Physics Technical University. At these universities,
Dr. Vasily Demyanov taught the course Challenges and Solutions in
Stochastic Reservoir Modelling – Geostatistics, Machine Learning, Uncertainty
The SLT programme allows student chapters to engage with though leaders
from the EAGE community. The lecture tour consists of two or more
deliveries in the same region or city. Students and supporters can learn
more on the tours and how to get involved in the EAGE Student Fund
