External Advisory Committee

UT PGE seeks the advice and consultation of an External Advisory Committee (EAC), made up of oil and gas industry leaders. Through this mechanism, faculty and EAC members enhance teaching excellence and improve the recruitment effort of quality students.

The EAC structure provides a means for faculty to learn about technical, business and philosophical trends taking place in industry. Similarly, the EAC provides a format in which the department can inform industry about current thinking in academia.

UT PGE is grateful for our dedicated and insightful current EAC members:
