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.
