An important aspect of the activities in the Flow Assurance Center is education of highly qualified Flow Assurance personnel for the Oil & Gas industry. The center currently has plans to educate roughly 15-16 PhD students and Post Doctoral researchers in the period from 2007 to 2014. As per November 2010, the center funds 7 PhD students and 3 Post Doctoral researchers and will in the time to come educate an additional 5-6 students.

Additionally, MSc degrees may be pursued under the FACE program and thesis suggestions may be found in the column to the right. These will be updated on a regular basis, but students are also encouraged to get in touch with alternative thesis suggestions that may be relevant to the FACE program.
