Penspen, a leading global provider of engineering, asset integrity and project management services to the energy industry, has signed an agreement of intent with the Universidad Juárez Autónoma de Tabasco (UJAT) to launch a master's degree in Integrity Management and Corrosion.
Both Peter O'Sullivan, chief executive officer of Penspen and Dr. Jose Manuel Piña Gutierrez, the rector of the UJAT signed the agreement earlier this month. Taking place in the rectory of the university in Villahermosa, Mexico, both the university authorities and representatives from Penspen witnessed the signing.
Currently in development, the launch of this new course will strengthen Penspen's training capabilities and further build on its relationship with UJAT.
The agreement of intent confirms Penspen's support of professional development in Mexico through the transfer of knowledge and good practices. Technical knowledge acquired from the experience of working with a range of clients throughout Latin America will be included within the content of the course.
Penspen has been operating in Mexico for 21 years and has now expanded to include offices across Latin America and the US. These include offices in Villahermosa and Ciudad Del Carmen, as well as in Santiago, Chile and Houston, US.
