Current Situation & Possible Solution


The current situation experienced in the oil and gas sector is a bit alarming, big companies are downsizing their employees because of the low oil prices and the current economic challenges experienced all over the global is alarming. In my expert view as a petroleum geoscientist, I believe it's the appropriate time for people in the oil and gas industries to take on further studies. On the other hand I recommend and urge Ugandans to take on oil and gas related courses to equip themselves with skills and more experience to take on the jobs in the oil and gas sector.

The current situation in the country is that most of the oil companies are not operating, so this would be the right time in regards to attaining more skills in oil and gas sector to improve on capability building and human resource. If it comes to attaining skills in oil and gas; Meritorious® Biztech® College is the answer to all your questions. We offer certificates and diplomas in petroleum management, petroleum technology and management plus all short courses related to oil and gas. We are accredited by National Council for Higher Education, and recently the Department of Petroleum has signed an MOU with International University of East African (IUEA), meaning all our Petroleum students can now upgrade to Bachelor’s degree in Petroleum Engineering from IUEA, this makes our institution not only being good at providing skills to our students but also makes sure they attain their goals by establishing for them links in order to brighten their future.

If you’re looking for the best institute in regards to oil and gas sector, look no further than Meritorious® Biztech® College.

Value of Time in Students


There are different stages in our life. One of these stages is student days. Student life is considered as the most important period of our life. Our future dreams, desires and hopes depend upon it. Student life is a period of preparations. It is a period of education. At this time, our mind is like clay. Clay is a soft thing and the potter designs various things out of the clay. Like clay, our mind can also be shaped in different ways. Once the pots are made their shape cannot be changed. Likewise, once our character is formed in one way, it cannot be changed easily. If we make right use and receive good education during our student life, we shall be successful in future. On the other hand, if we aren’t serious at this time, we can’t achieve our goals. Students, therefore, should be very careful. We must think seriously before every step we take. We must learn new things as much as possible at this period.

The most important factor that affects the student life is the value of time. Being a student we should do everything on time as it never waits for anyone. Obeying one’s parents and teachers and respecting and loving one’s elders are the great virtues of a student. Another important part of a student’s life is his/her social life. A student must have good discipline and he/she must be co-operative with everyone. Social life influences our character in many ways.

Many students enter college expecting good times, friendship and a good sense of direction. They soon find out that colleges come with challenges and struggles because of the great demands and expectations that are put on the importance of education. Students experience a great deal of stress many times.Thus, it is very important for them to manage a proper routine and stick to it.

Student life is the best part of an individual’s life. At this time our main task is to study. We should stop thinking of anything else and concentrate on education. Education must be given the top priority.
