Petroleum engineering is primarily concerned with the economic extraction of oil, gas, and other natural resources from the earth. This is accomplished through the design, drilling, and operation of wells and well systems, and the integrated management of the underground reservoirs in which the resources are found.

Summer Internships

Petroleum engineering students are required to complete a summer internship in the oil and gas exploration and production industry before enrolling in the senior petroleum engineering courses. The internship must consist of at least six weeks of full-time employment.

 The student is required to prepare a Student Internship Report for the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. The purpose of the report is to aid the committee in program evaluation. Specifically, the committee is interested in how well the student was prepared for the summer internship after completion of the junior year.
