Professor Mohamed Soliman, chair of the Cullen College department of petroleum engineering, is featured in Rigzone.com, a leading resource for news about the oil and gas industry.

In the article “What's It Take to Land a Job as a Petroleum Engineer?” Soliman offers words of advice and direction for students, chief among them – be one.

“Employers want graduates from an accredited university,” says Soliman, who believes formal education is just the beginning.

“What they’re learning is not just coming out of a book – it’s real life experience and what’s happening currently,” said Soliman. As the premier public university in the energy capital of the world, UH is perfectly situated to assist in that regard, he says, providing opportunities for internships and real-world experience.
