University of Houston signs MoU with IIPE to build scientific, technical knowledge through joint research

The University of Houston has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Indian Institute of Petroleum and Energy (IIPE) to build scientific and technical knowledge through joint research.  

The agreement was signed at Houston by IIPE founding director VSRK Prasad and UH vice provost for global strategies and studies, Jaime Ortiz.

It covers key areas of possible collaboration in faculty exchanges, offshore and onshore petroleum engineering, process control systems and process safety in all chemical engineering fields and non-conventional energy areas. The MoU also covers possible student exchanges for short-term visits and learning.  
Mr. Prasad thanked his UH counterparts and urged them to "groom" the young institute. 
IIPE was established in 2016 in Andhra Pradesh initiated by the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas. It offers undergraduate degrees in petroleum and chemical engineering and is planning to offer various graduate programmes in energy-related fields.
