Oil Search completes Stem roadshow at Unitech

Youth & Careers

OIL Search has completed its first science, technology, engineering and mathematics (Stem) roadshow at the University of Technology (Unitech) in Lae.
The company inducted the first four Unitech recipients of its Stem scholarship programme and provided insights to students on their various talent development programmes.
Recipient Sabrina Lafanama, a final-year mechanical engineering student, shared her internship experience and acknowledged Oil Search for its continuous support to young citizens.
“It is a privilege to be selected for this scholarship programme,” she said.
As the only female out of the seven interns from Unitech, Lafanama challenged female engineers to apply.
The scholarship programme highlights Oil Search’s commitment to creating careers in the oil and gas industry.
One of the sessions involved a meeting with Unitech association of women engineers, led by Serah Wakia Joseph, an Oil Search production engineer, and Katherine Manus.
“Over the past five to six years, I’ve witnessed the landscape changing,” Wakia said.
“More females are being inspired to get into Stem fields and really achieving remarkable things.”
