Who We Are
UT's PGE department is the nation's top petroleum engineering program. For almost 90 years, we have focused on hiring the world's brightest academic minds and recruiting top-tier students who go on to change the oil and gas industry through their leadership. Our curriculum and research is constantly evolving to meet society's biggest energy challenges.
We believe the best student is a well-rounded student, so we offer hands-on petroleum engineering opportunities, a study abroad program, and a mentorship initiative for first-year students. Our students are taught by a renowned group of faculty and supported by first-class staff. Together, we aim to offer our students an experience through education and student programs that prepares them for life after the PGE program.
