In an exclusive interview with Earthfinds in February this year, Victoria University Vice Chancellor Dr. Stephen Robert Isabalija said they would add more oil and gas related course. And these short courses which will be seven weekends’ long come as a partial fulfilment to the vice chancellor promise.
