The rise of interest in professions of the fuel-energy complex among youth, in technical specialties and in such exact disciplines as chemistry, mathematics, mining, engineering and geological specialties – this is the goal of the educational portal www.neftyanik-school.ru, made by JSC “BASHNEFT” jointly with the Pre-Institute Training Center under the Ufa State Oil Technical University. This is the first intellectual portal for the senior pupils, wishing to choose the profession, concerned with the oil branch. Its users may accomplish the tasks, take part in the contests and virtual Olympiads and receive valuable prizes and bonuses for that. But the main thing is that pupils can prepare themselves for entering the University and determine their future profession.
