Petroleum Engineering
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.

Alumni Survey

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.
