Meet our Students

Ole Ollmann (Germany – LLM in Oil and Gas Law, now Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy Law)

Whilst working on his dissertations, Ole was offered an internship at Hapag-Lloyd AG, one of the oldest and most respected shipping companies in Germany and a leading globally operating container line. During his three month internship, Ole was involved in the day to day bunker procurement and bunker trade practice in the bunkering department. Ole was offered valuable inside into oil markets, trading and hedging practice as well as procurement strategies of a large container line. He procured bunker fuels for ships, prepared the necessary documentation and also dealt with bunker claims.

In addition, he dealt with general matters of the relevant law, such as general terms and conditions of sale and charter party terms pertaining to bunker fuel. Ole found his internship a great experience which gave him an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge gained during the LLM program. After completion of his internship, Ole moved to a permanent position in the chartering / operations department of a specialised tanker owner and operator.

Mission and goals

Energy Engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the design and the management of energy plants and their components in order to ensure the best use of the available resources with the minimum environmental impact. Energy plants are systems in which energy forms are transformed and utilized. To name a few examples: large thermal power stations, air-conditioning and climate control equipment for residences and offices, vehicle engines, airplane propellers, solar panels etc.
The Master of Science in Energy Engineering prepares professionals to design, select and use the main technologies in energy transformation, to actively follow scientific improvements and to operate effectively in a competitive and multi-disciplinary industrial context, characterized by significant environmental, regulatory and safety constraints. Students will analyze broad themes as well as specific subjects for which both a rigorous methodological approach to thermodynamics and an open attitude towards related interdisciplinary topics are required.

See the website http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/educational-offer/laurea-magistrale-equivalent-to-master-of-science-programmes/energy-engineering/energy-engineering-track/

Professional opportunities

Graduates can find employment in several sectors: in the technical area of designing, testing, running, and maintaining the energy systems, like heating and cooling systems, thermal power and hydro-electric power plants, engines, oil and gas fields; in the energy management area; and in utilities and public boards that supply energy as electricity and natural gas.

Energy is the largest and one of the most dynamic industry sectors. It raises many challenges both politically and technically, from traditional exploration and production of fossil fuels to more recent mining extraction methods (hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking'), renewables and environmental protection. Queen Mary is only one of a few universities in the world to offer an LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law and this programme builds upon well-established areas at Queen Mary, such as Commercial Law, Dispute Resolution, Environmental Law and Regulation.
