PiET also invited the new members for an in-person ceremony where they received certificates and the PiET insignia. The event was an opportunity to recognize the petroleum engineering students’ hard work in maintaining their excellent academic standing despite the challenges posed by the pandemic.
Inductee Shaikh said, “Being recognized for academic excellence and being a member of this prestigious society is going to be an additional driving force behind my commitment to maintaining my GPA. I don’t see any turning back from now on. Sincere thanks to the Petroleum Engineering Program for always considering students’ needs and motivating them to give their best.”
Pi Epsilon Tau is a student-led organization that aims to foster a closer bond between its members and the petroleum industry, broaden the scope of activities of its members, and maintain the high ideals and standards of the engineering profession.
