About

In order to receive a graduate degree in Petroleum Engineering, a student must complete advanced course work and demonstrate an ability to successfully formulate and complete a research program. The specific courses selected for the degree plan shall be a proper mixture of Petroleum and non-petroleum engineering courses. 

Overview

General Description

Since it is the function of the advisory committee to provide guidance in both research and course selection, new graduate students must select the members of their graduate advisory committee by the end of the student's first semester of residency. During the first semester, students will have the opportunity to observe different professors in the classroom and to discuss research interests with each member of the department and adjunct faculty. The Department is fortunate to have collaborative research efforts with members of the New Mexico Petroleum Recovery Research Center (PRRC), Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories, and others. Several researchers in these organizations hold adjunct faculty appointments with the department. Significant research activities are carried out at all locations and students are strongly encouraged to discuss their research options with as many faculty members as possible before selecting an advisor.
