Earlier this week, the University of Houston hosted a panel discussion at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) which focused on our success in working with the energy industry to establish the popular undergraduate petroleum engineering program. The discussion, which took place at Reliant Center on May 7, highlighted a recent study by the Business Higher Education Forum that highlighted UH’s undergraduate petroleum engineering program as a model partnership between industry and academia.

Now, Fuel Fix has covered the UH-sponsored panel discussion at the OTC, highlighting our efforts to bring together academics, researchers, and industry in an effort to align priorities and goals as well as address the dwindling numbers of homegrown engineers entering into the energy industry.
