Itba - Total Austral: Committed to Education
Educating and Developing Engineering and Technology Professionals
Since it was established as a private university in 1959, the Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires has been recognized for its commitment to innovation, technology and academic excellence. Since 2004, Total Austral has provided financial support to the Petroleum Engineering degree course taught at ITBA, to fund scholarship grants, assist gifted students and invite foreign professionals to teach advanced courses.
A Commitment to the Future
In 2013, a cooperation agreement was signed between Total Professeurs Associés (TPA), Total Austral and ITBA, under which respected experts from Total are teaching courses on specific subjects at ITBA. In addition, ITBA announced the launch of a double degree agreement between its Oil and Natural Gas Production program and the Resevoir Geoscience and Engineering program at the IFP School in France. Under the agreement, ITBA students who opt to take the double degree will spend two semesters at the IFP School.
Total Austral and the Instituto Tecnológico de Buenos Aires are working together to promote technical training in Argentina.
