The UH Cullen College of Engineering’s petroleum engineering program is the focus of ICOSA Energy Magazine’s latest issue in the article “A Crucial Undergraduate Degree Returns to the University of Houston.”

The magazine spoke with Tom Holley, director of the petroleum engineering program, and John Lee, Professor and Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Distinguished University Chair of petroleum engineering, about the petroleum engineering program’s reemergence in 2009. The rapidly-growing program now boasts 550 undergraduate students. Holley expressed his desire to grow the program’s doctoral section, and the magazine describes the program as “hitting the academic jackpot” when Lee joined the faculty in 2011.

Of the program, Lee said, “… We can build how we think it ought to be built and we know our efforts are very well needed and respected.” Read the full article, on page 16, here.
