The 10 lucky students are all affiliated with the Department of Energy Resources and the Department of Energy and Petroleum Technology. The students have shown excellent skills, and are now rewarded for their efforts. Most of the awards went to master's students, while six of the awards went to undergraduate students who have only studied for one year at UiS.

The University works closely with the industry. The awards that were given this day show that the industry appreciates the work that is being done by the students, both in the lecture halls and in the laboratories at the petroleum institutes.
