Cullen College Equips Students for Growing Industry Needs, Chronicle Says

"About five or six years ago, industry leaders came to us and said they needed petroleum engineers, and we are continuing to tailor our programs to meet the industry's needs," Shattuck said.

The International Energy Agency predicts the demand for energy and corresponding expertise for the exploration and production industries will grow by one-third over the next 20 years. Faced with that looming increase, industry leaders are looking at how best to bulk up their workforce with trained and experienced engineers.
