For many years ORLEN Laboratorium has been cooperating with the Institute of Chemistry of the Warsaw University of Technology in Płock; since June 2007 the cooperation has been continued under a signed Letter of Intent.
Since 2004 students of the Institute of Chemistry have been undergoing placements in ORLEN Laboratorium under care and supervision of specialists and laboratory workers. In laboratories which are fitted out with modern, specialist equipment they have an opportunity to put the acquired theoretical knowledge to practical use and to become familiar with the specific nature of work in a laboratory. Further to this, students can write diploma theses in themes related to the business of ORLEN Laboratorium. Works are carried out under care of heads of the laboratories who support candidates for a degree with their knowledge and experience.
In August in the current year a prize under the patronage of the President of the Management Board of ORLEN Laboratorium was set up which will be awarded every year for the best diploma dissertation drawn up by a student of the Institute of Chemistry of the Warsaw University of Technology in ORLEN Laboratorium and will be presented to a winner by the President of the Management Board during a grand inauguration of an academic year.
