Reaching Future Students

Texas A&M University SPE Student Chapter is continuing its public outreach campaign with special emphasis on educating the public on the important role of the petroleum industry in global development. We would like to thank all the volunteers from our chapter for their selfless service and hard work.

Freshmen Seminars
TAMU-SPE Recruitment Committee has hosted a series of seminars as a part of the Dwight Look College of Engineering introducing freshmen engineering students to Petroleum Engineering. These seminars covered topics on drilling and completion, petroleum project evaluation, economics, and reserve calculations.

College Station High School Visit
The TAMU-SPE Outreach Committee spent October 29th with College Station High School students from six different classes discussing the impact of the oil and gas industry in today’s society. Discussions varied from the technology development and the environment protection by the industry, to student life at Texas A&M University and expectations of joining the industry. A special thanks to College Station High School for the invitation to visit for the day and to return next year.

High School Recruiting
On November 18th members of the TAMU-SPE Recruitment Committee participated in an engineering fair at Memorial High School in Houston, TX. In the two-hour event, high school students first listened to a keynote presentation about the oil and gas industry, then had the opportunity to interact with petroleum departments from across the country. Thank you to SPE-GCS for organizing such a successful event.
