Catlettsburg Refinery recently hosted students and faculty from Marshall University’s College of Information Technology and Engineering (CITE). Participants were treated to several presentation about engineering, process safety management, and safety and environmental professions at the refinery. The guests also were taken on a tour of the facility.
“This event gives us an opportunity to cast a favourable light upon the refinery with many college students, the administration of CITE, other business leaders who are members of the Marshall University Safety Advisory Board and engineering and safety faculty members,” said Alley who hosted the visit with Safety Supervisor Greg Gibson. “They leave this tour and visit with a very positive impression of Marathon Petroleum Co.”
“Students in CITE deeply appreciate the opportunity to see a working refinery in action and hear firsthand from the different departments involved such as safety, environmental engineering, and mechanical engineering,” said Elizabeth Hanrahan, associate dean, CITE, Marshall University. “This tour and lecture shows them the practical application of what they are studying and therefore is an invaluable experience for them, which they talk about all the rest of the year.”
The connections made during this event have resulted in the refinery hiring four safety professionals who visited during past tours, while two of the students who attended this year’s event have completed internships with MPC.
