ИМЕНАМИ ЛУЧШИХ ВЫПУСКНИКОВ РГУ НЕФТИ И ГАЗА ИМЕНИ И.М. ГУБКИНА БУДУТ НАЗЫВАТЬ НОВЫЕ ЗВЕЗДЫ (Звездный старт Губкинского)

 

На слёте лучших студентов вуза, который называется «Звёздный старт», ректор университета Виктор Георгиевич Мартынов объявил о том, что именем «Губкинский университет» названа целая галактика. Новые звезды этой галактики будут получать имена выдающихся ученых, педагогов и лучших выпускников вуза. Уникальная звезда-супергигант была названа в честь основателя университета – академика Ивана Михайловича Губкина. Университет ориентируется на привлечение лучших абитуриентов, прилагает все усилия, чтобы дать им не только современное и востребованное образование, но и практически гарантировать перспективную карьеру в нефтегазовом бизнесе. Поощрение талантливых и успешных обучающихся вуза – одна из целей проекта «Звездный старт».

Выпускники РГУ нефти и газа имени И.М. Губкина получают уникальные карьерные возможности, которые дает образование, полученное в ведущем нефтегазовом вузе России. Такой старт – один из самых успешных в российской высшей школе. Нефтегазовая отрасль еще долгое время будет оставаться ключевой в отечественной экономике, где востребованы все новые и новые кадры. Нефтегазовый бизнес максимально насыщен сложными, но интересными производственными процессами. Молодым и талантливым работникам отрасль бросает не только профессиональный вызов, но и открывает широчайшие возможности для самореализации и внедрения инноваций. Эффект от ноу-хау приводит к увеличению добычи нефти и газа, повышает прибыль и экологическую безопасность производства.

Университет постоянно совершенствует технологии образования и воспитания молодежи в соответствии с требованиями работодателей. Широкий спектр междисциплинарных и инновационных образовательных проектов реализуется в Губкинском университете каждый день. Это позволяет студентам получить самое востребованное образование, а также практические навыки работы на зарубежных полномасштабных тренажерах, освоить современное научное оборудование и стать профессионалами своего дела. Велика роль Губкинского университета и в развитии регионов, ведь на сегодняшний день в университете учатся ребята из всех субъектов Российской Федерации, а также более чем из 40 стран мира. Многие выпускники будут работать на самых сложных и в то же время богатых месторождениях Отечества. Важно выделить лучших и поощрять их с самого старта.

В Дворце культуры «Губкинец» Губкинского университета состоялся слёт студенческой элиты вуза под девизом «Звездный старт». Возрождая давние традиции, ректор университета Виктор Георгиевич Мартынов вручил отличникам и активистам корпоративные студенческие награды «Звезда Губкинского университета». Награждение обучающихся нагрудными звездами и памятными дипломами прошло в трех номинациях: обычная звезда, серебряная и золотая.

Ректор Виктор Георгиевич Мартынов выступил с обращением к лучшим студентам: «Дорогие ребята, отличники, лучшие студенты университета! Мы собрались для того, чтобы вы увидели друг друга, почувствовали единение. Сегодня более тысячи студентов можно смело отнести к элите Губкинского университета. Это ребята, которые имеют только отличные оценки, успешны в науке, осваивают новые профессии, проявили себя в культуре и спорте, стали чемпионами. Мы гордимся вами! …Возможно, именно вы станете будущими руководителями нефтегазового производства. Ваша стартовая позиция достаточно высока, конкурировать с вами весьма сложно. Мы приготовили сюрприз для всех студентов университета, сотрудников и выпускников, для тех, кто делает свое профессиональное дело в разных компаниях на разных континентах: мы зарегистрировали на университет галактику и дали ей имя «Губкинский университет». И мы решили, что самой первой звездой в нашей галактике должна быть звезда Ивана Михайловича Губкина, основателя нашего Губкинского университета. И в дальнейшем мы сможем называть звезды именами выдающихся выпускников университета. Задача нашего преподавательского состава – зажечь больше таких звезд. И вместе с вами мы сможем это сделать. Желаю всем вам быть настоящими звездами!»

Всего за прошедший период с начала учебного года на различных мероприятиях было вручено более 200 студенческих наград, а в планах еще больше! В число награжденных попали отличники (средний бал которых на протяжении нескольких семестров был 5.0), а также студенты, которые обладают выдающимися достижениями в науке, культуре, творчестве и спорте – Чемпионы Европы, серебряные призеры на Чемпионате мира, Чемпионы России, золотые медалисты Универсиады.

Своими впечатлениями о новом проекте делятся сами студенты – звезды Губкинского университета. Егор Рябов, получивший награду-звезду за успехи в учебе и за активное участие в общественной жизни вуза (недавно он был избран председателем Объединенного Совета Обучающихся университета): «Очень приятно, когда университет выражает благодарность за то, что ты сделал. И, конечно, особенно важно, что родителям студентов отправляются благодарственные письма. Это большая радость, когда домой приходят такие новости».

Среди обладателей наград студентка университета – чемпионка Европы и Вице-чемпионка мира по фитнес-аэробике Ирина Кадышева: «Получение звезды дает нам много преимуществ, среди которых возможность прохождения международных стажировок и тренингов, направленных на развитие лидерских качеств, а также помощь в будущем трудоустройстве. У меня много спортивных побед, медалей и кубков, но награда в университете особенная».

Сама идея использования звездной тематики при награждении лучших студентов принадлежит ректору университета Виктору Георгиевичу Мартынову и, как отмечают награжденные, это особенно приятно.

Разработкой проекта «Звездный старт» занималась проректор по учебно-воспитательной работе Марина Николаевна Филатова. Новые студенческие награды были воплощены в жизнь начальником отдела по связям с общественностью Андреем Сергеевичем Ларионовым: «Дизайн студенческой награды в виде четырехконечной звезды лаконичен и символизирует стороны света. Это могут быть географические точки будущей работы или творческие направления развития наших талантливых студентов. В центре этого звездного компаса логотип нашего университета – как точка отсчета, как своеобразный «космодром», откуда в свой путь отправляются ребята покорять «галактику успеха»! Именно поэтому мы выбрали звездную тематику для проведения слета, который прошел с голливудским размахом, лазерным шоу и гигантской видеостеной с парадом звезд и планет!»

Как только речь заходит о звездности университета, встает и два других вопроса: отбор лучших абитуриентов, а также гордость за лучших выпускников. Несомненно, что лучшие выпускники школ должны выбирать лучшие университеты. Для того чтобы старшеклассникам и их родителям было легче принять решение о том, в какое учебное заведение стоит подавать документы, очень важно заранее изучить объективные рейтинги. Как отмечает президент РГУ нефти и газа имени И.М. Губкина Альберт Ильич Владимиров: «Главным критерием при проведении отечественных рейтингов вузов, как правило, является качество образования. Нужно и участвовать в международных рейтингах, и быть организаторами национальных рейтингов с приглашением коллег из-за рубежа (они заинтересованы в нашем рынке образовательных услуг). Участвуя в международном рейтинге, наши университеты решают и одну из главных на сегодня задач — не потерять из нашей системы высшего образования талантливого отечественного абитуриента и привлечь в отечественные вузы талантливого зарубежного абитуриента».

Многие выпускники успешно сделали карьеру в крупнейших российских и зарубежных компаниях нефтегазового профиля, занимая посты директоров, вице-президентов, руководителей департаментов и управлений таких компаний, как ОАО «Газпром», ОАО «НК «Роснефть», Halliburton, Schlumberger, а также далеко продвинулись в государственной службе, например, министр природных ресурсов и экологии России возглавляет Сергей Донской – выпускник Губкинского университета 1992 года. А наш выпускник 1983 года Наиль Маганов недавно возглавил ОАО «Татнефть» имени В.Д. Шашина – одну из самых инновационных нефтяных компаний России.

Валентин Шашин закончил «керосинку» в 1943 году, был успешным государственным деятелем, министром нефтяной промышленности СССР в 1965-1977 гг. В те годы был период самого интенсивного развития и огромного подъёма нефтяной отрасли СССР, когда объемы добычи нефти увеличились вдвое. Это обеспечило мировое признание российской энергетической мощи, техническое перевооружение отрасли, были подняты на новый уровень социальная обеспеченность населённых пунктов и условия работы нефтяников.

Известные и успешные выпускники – гордость любого университета. Губкинский университет вошел в первую десятку символического рейтинга российских вузов, выпустивших за свою историю немалое количество миллиардеров. Например, среди звезд-выпускников в рейтинге Forbes-2013 был отмечен генеральный директор «Яндекса» Аркадий Волож.

Российский университет нефти и газа имени И.М. Губкина обладает старейшей научно-педагогической школой, готовящей специалистов для нефтегазовой отрасли с 1930 года. В рейтинге вузов по востребованности выпускников у работодателей в 2013 году университет вошел в тройку лидеров.

Обучение в Губкинском университете – «звездный старт» для талантливых, амбициозных и трудолюбивых студентов. У каждого есть шанс, что его именем назовут звезду. Ведь «если звезды зажигают, значит это кому-нибудь нужно».

Ларионов Андрей Сергеевич, к.т.н., адъюнкт РАЕН, начальник отдела связи с общественностью, РГУ нефти и газа имени И.М. Губкина.

THE CENTRE FOR WOMEN'S STUDIES

 

The Centre for Women's Studies was established in Trinity College in July, 1988. In 1999, in order to reflect the increasing diversity of its interests in areas such as sexualities and masculinities, the Centre expanded its title and remit to become the Centre for Gender and Women's Studies. In 2005, the Centre became a full member of the School of Histories and Humanities. According to a 2006 evaluation, ‘Trinity is now the academically strongest Gender and Women's Studies Centre in Ireland '

Since its inception, the Centre has developed and sustained an M.Phil programme and a doctoral programme of the highest quality, has undertaken significant research activities and engaged in both innovative and traditional community outreach. Members of the Centre are recognised both nationally and throughout the EU for their expertise on gender issues.

The Centre for Gender and Women's Studies undertakes three interrelated activities: teaching, research and community/extramural activities. Using an integrated approach to research and learning, both staff and students are encouraged to participate across these areas.

The Centre houses a formal Research Unit which was initially funded for three years by Atlantic Philanthropies in 2004. The aim of the Research Unit of CGWS is to undertake socially relevant research from a feminist perspective, asking challenging questions about the type of society we have and the type of society we wish to create. Its overall focus is on issues of equality/inequality with specific emphasis on:

- Women and Ambition.

- Issues of Work Life Balance.

- Education and Gender Equity.

- Change and Diversity in Family Structures.

- Gender and Ageing.

- Barriers and Facilitators to Women's Advancement.

- Masculinities.

- Sexualities.

- Human Rights.

The Research Unit has competed successfully for tenders from the government, state agencies and the voluntary sector from organisations such as the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform, the Department of Education and Science, the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment, the Irish Human Rights Commission, and the Crisis Pregnancy Agency.

For more information about research taking place through the CGWS, please browse through our current and past projects.

THE IRISH ART RESEARCH CENTRE

(TRIARC)

 

The Irish Art Research Centre was established in 2003 in response to the growing international interest in Irish art, leading to a demand for courses at all levels, for research and publications analysing imagery of Irish interest, and for well qualified graduates. The establishment of the centre was facilitated by the generous support of benefactors, enabling the appointment of dedicated staff, and the restoration of the Provost’s House Stables to provide facilities for education and research, including the visual archive and a collection of texts on aspects of Irish art.

The centre builds on the extensive expertise in Irish art that has been a feature of the History of Art Department since its inception.

The Centre is usually open on Mondays and Tuesdays during the July and August. Other days may be available by appointment, depending on staff leave. Please contact Ruth Sheehy: rsheehy@tcd.ie for details.

THE PLATO CENTRE

 

The Plato Centre organises and directs a variety of activities in the area of the history of Platonism and contemporary philosophy in the Platonist tradition. Although based in Trinity College, the Centre draws its members from all the major universities in the Dublin area. It combines several subject areas in addition to its core disciplines: philosophy and classics. Its activities include:

1. The weekly reading seminar goes back to the original founding of the Centre and its aim is to bring together scholars and students to engage in close readings of core texts from the Platonic tradition, and modern philosophical texts that have a Platonic influence.

2. The supervision of postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows is one of the primary functions of the Centre. The Centre has a proud tradition of providing support and supervision for candidates who are working toward the M.Litt and Ph.D. degrees. Postgraduate students who are enrolled in any of the major Dublin universities in philosophy, classics or a related discipline, and are working on a topic within the Platonic Tradition may seek supervision with one of the members of the Centre. Please click here for a list of former and current postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows and their projects.

3. The postgraduate and postdoctoral workshop is a recent introduction to the Centre with the aim of providing a forum in which advanced students can present their work–in–progress on a regular basis for the scrutiny of each other and of scholars in attendance.

4. The visiting speaker colloquium attracts distinguished scholars from around the world and has for many years been a lively venue for discussion and debate – typically extending into convivial evenings.

5. The annual Stephen Mackenna lecture is named in commemoration of the great Irish translator of Plotinus and is designed to honor distinguished contemporary scholars working in the field of Plato and the Platonic tradition.

6. The public lecture series was conceived by John Dillon and inaugurated with his memorable talk «Platonism and the World Crisis», for the purpose of bringing a Platonic perspective to the problems of everyday life.

The Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing was opened in January 1998 as the teaching and research centre for both the long-standing M.Phil. in Irish Writing and the M.Phil. in Creative Writing.

The Centre was originally the home of the Wilde family and it was in the Westland Row house that the famous son of Sir William and Lady Wilde ('Speranza') was born on October 16th 1854. As a fitting tribute to one of Trinity College's best known students, the Oscar Wilde Centre will eventually house a library and reading room dedicated to his memory, along with a room dedicated to another great Irish scholar and writer, Vivian Mercier.

The Centre also houses the Visiting Writer's Office. At present the Writer Fellowship (established in 1986 in association with The Arts Council) is for Irish writers; in 2000 the International Writer Fellowship was inaugurated in association with the British Council. George Szirtes, the Anglo-Hungarian poet, spent three months living in the College as the first International Writer Fellow. Other International Writer Fellows to hold this position were Leone Ross 2001, Andrew O'Hagan 2002, Ian Duhig 2003, Carlo G?bler 2004, Courttia Newland 2005, E. A. Markham 2006.

Devoted to writing and research, the Oscar Wilde Centre's exclusive focus is on providing an academic yet lively environment for students of both M.Phil. graduate courses.

As an interface between college and community, the Oscar Wilde Centre plays a role in bringing the achievement and ambition of writers and scholars to the attention of a wider public at home and abroad.

The Director of the Oscar Wilde Centre for Irish Writing is Professor Gerald Dawe. He is also Director of the M.Phil in Creative Writing. The Directors for the M.Phil in Irish Writing are Professor Nicholas Grene and Associate Professor Eve Patten.

The Course Administrator for the Master in Philosophy programmes at the Oscar Wilde Centre is Lilian Foley, Administrator's Office, 21 Westland Row, Dublin 2

Along with the Directors, several other academics are involved in teaching at the Centre.

Combining survey courses with more specialised options, drawn from the particular research interests of the lecturers who contribute to the course, the programme allows students to gain a thorough understanding of Irish literature in its native context.

The M.Phil. in Creative Writing is now in its seventeenth year, and continues to be extremely successful. Focusing on the practical business of writing, rewriting and editing, the programme also includes an introduction to the publishing industry, a series of lectures by established writers in a wide range of genres, and the opportunity to take one of the specialised options offered to students on the M.Phil. in Irish Writing.

THE LOYOLA INSTITUTE: A HISTORIC DEVELOPMENT

 

The Loyola Institute Open Day for students interested in studying Theology in 2014 will take place on Friday January 17th in the Loyola Institute/Irish School of Ecumencis building in Trinity. Second-level students, mature students, and parents/guardians are invited to attend.

The Loyola Institute is dedicated to education and research in theology in the Catholic tradition. This Institute was established in 2011 by the Board of Trinity College Dublin. The establishment of this new Institute means that TCD joins a host of great Universities across the UK, Europe, and the United States in this field of study.

Theology in the Catholic tradition is a centuries old pursuit but there are always new challenges. The marvellous restatement of Catholic thought and identity that made up the documents and declarations of the Second Vatican Council fifty years ago could scarcely have come about without the decades of research into theology that preceded the Council. Today, fifty years on, theology in the Catholic tradition is a very vigorous intellectual pursuit, engaged with many of the vital issues of the day. To mention one: we live in a more globalised world than ever previously. Diverse cultures and diverse religious traditions interact with one another more vigorously than ever before. The importance of genuine inter-religious dialogue and interreligious understanding is obvious. One of the best ways of pursuing this is to seek fuller understanding of one’s own religious tradition or the traditions that have shaped the culture in which one is a participant, - and then move out from there. This is just one of the urgent and relevant preoccupations of contemporary theological studies and will continue to be an interest of the Loyola Institute. The first undergraduate programme, a Moderatorship in Catholic Theological Studies (CAO TR030) Single Honours, has now started with the first intake in September 2013.

IRELAND - TEXTS AND CONTEXTS

 

The following represents a selection of projects currently underway within the 'Ireland - Texts and Contexts' research theme at Trinity College Dublin.

1641 Depositions.

ECLRNI: The Eighteenth-Century Literature Research Network in Ireland.

The Pollard Collection of Children's Literature.

Bridge-IT.

Crookshank-Glin Collection Cataloguing and Digitisation Project.

Irish Military Migration.

Irish Film & TV Research Online.

 

1641 Depositions.

This multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary research project aims to transcribe and digitise the 1641 Depositions, a unique manuscript collection, held in the TCD Library. The collection comprises 3,400 depositions, examinations and associated materials (approximately 19,000 pages) in which Protestant men and women of all classes tell of their experiences following the outbreak of the rebellion by the Catholic Irish in October 1641. This pioneering project will not only unlock a significant historical resource, it will also apply cutting-edge technology through its unique collaboration with IBM, to structure and lend meaning to a large data corpus, thereby capturing the subtle processes by which our project team discern the meaning of documents.

This project has received funding from the Trinity College Library Dublin, the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences and the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK.

 

ECLRNI: The Eighteenth-Century Literature Research Network in Ireland.

This network was set up in late 2006 to foster closer links between those working – whether as teachers or graduate students - in third-level departments of English throughout the island. To date, the ECLRNI has over 60 members, from all universities, as well as other third-level institutions and research libraries, in both jurisdictions. The Network held three meetings during 2007: a symposium on the state of eighteenth-century literary studies in Ireland (3 February in TCD); a business meeting (16 June in Queen’s University Belfast); and a second research symposium (17 November at Lucan House). The third ECLRNI research symposium took place in the conference room of the Dublin Public Library and Archive, Pearse Street on 1 March 2008.

This project has received funding from the Long Room Hub Research Initiative Scheme, which in turn is funded by the Higher Education Authority under PRTLI IV.

 

The Pollard Collection of Children's Literature.

The Pollard Collection consists of 10,000 children’s books across four centuries, but it currently remains uncatalogued. As a first step towards towards making the Pollard Collection into a usable research resource, the Long Room Hub is supporting a collaborative project which will carry out a preservation survey on the collection, identify academic themes for research and facilitate its cataloguing. In this manner, the Pollard collection can become a fundamental infrastructure for new research in children’s literature, with an eye to the nascent TCD MPhil in the history of the children’s book. This pilot project will also lay the foundations for a long-term partnership with the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and initiate formal networking between postgraduates and staff at the institutions concerned.

Bridge-IT Project.

The Bridge-IT project will produce an interactive, multimedia online digital resource on the subject of ageing, a new departure in the communication of academic research using eHumanities expertise, tools and technologies. The project will create ‘living history’: breathing life into raw data and primary source material that is voice-centred and creative. This digital resource for researchers in ageing and social gerontology from multiple disciplines will also simultaneously serve as an interactive connection point for older people who will be able to engage with the content. The project will explore the frontiers of human-centred computing and social networking through investigation of the use of adaptive hypermedia, visualisation, user-generated content, online communities.

Crookshank-Glin Collection Cataloguing and Digitisation Project.

The Crookshank-Glin Collection was generated over a period of approximately 40 years by Anne Crookshank, Professor Emeritus of History of Art, Trinity College, and Desmond Fitzgerald, Knight of Glin. In 2002, the collection was donated to Trinity College Dublin, and it is now administered by TRIARC, the Irish Art Research Centre which was founded in the following year. The Crookshank-Glin Collection comprises material relating to Irish art, in particular painting, between the 17th century and the early 20th century. It includes a diverse collection of approximately 45,000 photographic images in various formats, correspondence, research notes, books, exhibition catalogues and a small number of original art works. The Crookshank-Glin image collection is the cornerstone of TRIARC's expanding visual archive which holds the largest such collection of Irish painting in Ireland, and probably in the world.

The project to catalogue the collection with a view to digitisation has been funded by the Getty Institute.

Irish Military Migration.

The project aims to construct a set of relational databases of the surviving records of Irish enlistment in the French, Austrian and Spanish armies in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; to publish this data electronically; and to foster research on the data both by the team and other scholars. With over 26,000 nominal entries gathered, the databases were made available online in the summer of 2006. Following this, two new projects will to build: [a] a comparative study of the Irish officers in the armies of Bourbon France and Bourbon Spain in the eighteenth century, and of the wider careers of these military families within the Bourbon empires in Europe and the Americas, a project designed to exploit the remarkably rich biographical information on these elites; and [b] a study of Irishmen in the French and Spanish navy in the eighteenth century.

Irish Film & TV Research Online.

Launched in 2006, the project website has catalogued 40,000 fiction and non-fiction films and major television productions made in Ireland and about Ireland and the Irish. In 2007, further funding was obtained from the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences to add to the website the complete catalogue of the decisions of the Irish film censor's office, over 50,000 records which are now housed at the National Archives of Ireland. The project also seeks to make available on the website digitized versions of paper records relating to Irish film and full motion pictures. Irish Film & TV Research Online is part of the School of Drama, Film and Music’s long term project, the Digital Archives of Irish Film, Music and Theatre.
