Program Advisory Board
The Program Advisory Board (PAB) has four important functions: (i) to advise and provide feedback to the Petroleum Engineering program on curriculum, alumni relations and student activities; (ii) to be a resource in enhancing the program through various activities including providing data sets, seminar speakers and field trips; (iii) to help students in finding jobs and internships by bringing additional companies to campus; and (iv) to be a liaison between the petroleum program and upper administration. The individual members of the PAB also serve on various committees related to these function and meet together as a whole twice a year.
Every year the Program Advisory Board of the Petroleum Engineering Department sends a survey to all our alumni in order to gauge a number of educational factors. Please check out the summary of results! These results are analyzed by the board in order to make recommendations for the department.
The Program Advisory Board of the Petroleum Engineering Department would like to hear from you! Please take the current survey.
