ABOUT OUR SOCIETY
Student Energy is a global charity society, building the next generation of energy leaders who will accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future.
Being headquartered in Canada, Student Energy has thousands of student followers in over 20+ countries. Student Energy Chapters are a vehicle to help the passionate youth transform into transition-makers who will make the visions of sustainable energy future a reality. Student Energy Chapters are established in over 35+ highly reputed universities including University of California Davis (USA), Cambridge University (UK), Durham University (UK), University of British Columbia (Canada), Murdoch University (Perth, Australia), Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología (Lima, Peru), University de Guadalajara (Mexico), Middle East Technical University (Turkey), Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences (Algeria).
The mission of our student chapter is to inspire the students and equip them with knowledge and skills that will assure their proficiency in contributing to a sustainable future. We will enable the students who are directly linked with oil and gas industry to research environmental-friendly ways to exploit petroleum resources. Our focus would be to assist the academia and industry in undergoing a smooth energy transition from fossil based to zero carbon energy production through innovative research and projects.
Our student chapter will work to instill the importance and perils of climate change due to CO2 emission through conferences and seminars, among the students of NED University of Engineering and Technology. We are strongly committed to produce competent energy leaders by engaging youth in innovative opportunities and global forums that will empower them to become the game changers.
STUDENT ENERGY NED CHAPTER PROGRESS
Student energy NED CHAPTER started its operation in late 2019 and since then, it has been a rollercoaster of events and opportunities for the young energy leaders.
