Petroleum Engineering Students Attend Conference
Undergraduate students in Missouri S&T petroleum engineering traveled to Ft. Worth Texas in March to attend the joint International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC) - Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Drilling Engineering Conference.
Students attended professional technical presentations and visited booths staffed by industry vendors, which provided opportunities for our students to network with industry leaders and learn more about life after college in the petroleum industry.
