The Faculty and professions

The Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering, a teaching and research institution, is a non-profit and non-politi- cal organization, but it necessarily cooperates with various state institutions, associations and economic entities. That coopera¬tion is necessary for the Faculty to participate in different cultural events in the city and region, to be informed about labour mar- ket, to participate in preparing various regulations related to the area of its study programmes, to organize practical work for its students in different organizations and for numerous other rea- sons. That cooperation is visible in the participation in exchange programmes, joint organization of scientific conferences, sum¬mer schools, research projects, cooperation in publishing sci¬entific journals, in undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate programmes and the exchange of students and teachers.
