Students pursuing the Petroleum Engineering minor, administered by the College of Engineering, will be exposed to the main petroleum engineering subjects, especially for the upstream sector. They will be equipped with an understanding of the vocabulary and engineering fundamentals needed to succeed in the oil and gas industry. They will also increase their involvement in the petroleum industry including field trips and facilities visits, and build knowledge about the current practices and issues related to the petroleum industry for conventional and unconventional resources, Utica and Marcellus Shales in particular.
