The Energy Makers Show, a webcast sponsored by Comcast Business, has a history of shaping their episodes around the expertise of Cullen College professors, and this week’s episode follows that trend. Host Russ Capper sat down with Tom Holley, director of petroleum engineering at UH, to discuss the rapidly expanding program.

“The program is growing in response to demand from the industry,” Holley said of the program, which has grown from around 20 students in the fall of 2009 to over 800 currently. He also addressed the competition between the petroleum engineering program and the professional industry to recruit the same industry experts.
