The energy transition is happening, intelligent production systems are changing oil and gas operations, and the pandemic has changed how and where we work.  We are educating engineers that are entering this industry in this rapidly changing landscape. 


The workshop is a joint effort of the SPE Education & Accreditation Committee & the Petroleum Engineering Department Heads Association (PEDHA).

This workshop will address how these changes are causing threats in recruiting, educating, and retaining petroleum engineers for the future. The workshop will also confront these challenges and create a roadmap for petroleum programs and curriculum to meet these challenges head-on and to succeed in this new environment.
