The CANIETI Executives spent 5 weeks at TAMU taking intensive English classes, and participating in an immersion industry program that included visits to IT and Energy companies in the Houston area. These visits included Forum Energy Technologies, Gardline Surveys, and the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute. Dr. Zenon Medina-Cetina, PI of the Yucatan Initiative at TAMU, and Ms. Patricia Valera, PhD Student from the Stochastic Geomechanics Laboratory (SGL), guided the technical visits.
Companies of the executives, reaching a total of $41,000.00 including tuition, fees and living expenses, covered the cost of the program.
This program opened doors for:
- Service collaboration
- Definition of the CANIETI Internship Program for TAMU students in Mexico in 2017
