For nearly a century, UT PGE has educated leaders who have shaped the oil and gas industry. In 2010, the department created the Distinguished Alumni Program to recognize the best among them - company executives, technological innovators and shrewd entrepreneurs who display an extraordinary commitment to the industry and our UT PGE community. This year, the Distinguished Alumni Program Committee will recognize five Distinguished Alumni and one Rising Star for their outstanding contributions.
