Idea & History

The idea behind the first ‘East meets West’ Congress was to gather people from different parts of the world, different universities, different companies in one, common idea – the idea without any barriers – the idea of the ‘East meets West’. No matter if you are a student or a scientist, no matter if you come from the west or from the east – we all are part of the Oilfield Industry family and this idea is still the clue of the Congress. Bringing up to life next editions of the ‘East meets West’ Congress has been a great pleasure & great honor. AGH UST SPE Student Chapter has been doing it already for nine years. The reasons why we are still doing it are pretty obvious: making new friendships, meeting inspiring people and meeting the brightest minds from around the world. Nevertheless, the most important part, the one that brought the biggest smile to everybody’s faces was the fact that together we make a difference. When it comes to the next edition, we can feel pure enthusiasm and joy. The source of this joy is you, dear participants. It is you who builds the ‘East meets West’ Congress and make the event happen. We wish it never ends.

AGH UST SPE Student Chapter  

AGH UST SPE Student Chapter is one of over three hundred SPE student chapters that operate all over the world. Since the beginning, we make efforts to spread knowledge about oil and gas production and provide our members with information about the newest technologies that are not contained in university textbooks yet. Through various activities, we encourage our members to take active part in Chapter’s life and to explore the fascinating world of oil and gas. We achieve our goals mainly by inviting professionals for meetings as our guests or as SPE Distinguished Lecturers, organizing an international congress ‘East meets West’ and publishing a trade magazine ‘YoungPetro’. Apart from those, we enable students to take part in conferences organized by chapters from other countries. We also organize workshops, cooperate with oil and gas companies while organizing manifold events and help students choose the most interesting topic for their research as well. Being part of the SPE AGH SC is an opportunity to test yourself in first serious projects and in cooperating with your colleagues. It is not only many hours of hard work, but also many unforgettable moments spent with friends. Our dream is to contaminate students with our passion of searching for knowledge and to make them realize the importance of personal development. SPE International awarded us with the GOLD STANDARD AWARD in 2013 and the OUTSTANDING STUDENT CHAPTER AWARD in recognition of our effective work, over-average team cooperation and outstanding project quality.
