Cockrell School of Engineering
The University of Texas at Austin


In 3 to 5 years after graduation, petroleum engineering program graduates will:

1. Be practical, employable and qualified petroleum engineers, who effectively solve problems and design new processes and workflows in the oil and gas production and services industries or other similar pursuits. Many will have started to move into leadership roles within their workplace.

2. Keep their education up to date through self-instruction and other training.

3. Serve society by encouraging the ideals of ethical behavior, professionalism, and environmentally responsible use of natural resources.

In 3 to 5 years after graduation, geosystems engineering and hydrogeology program graduates will:

1. Be practical, employable and qualified geosystems engineers and hydrogeologists, who effectively solve problems and design new processes and workflows in subsurface environmental engineering and oil and gas production and services industries or other similar pursuits. Many will have started to move into leadership roles within their workplace.

2. Keep their education up-to-date through self-instruction and other training.

3. Serve society by encouraging the ideals of ethical behavior, professionalism, and environmentally responsible use of natural resources.

Student Outcomes:

Graduates of the petroleum engineering program must demonstrate:

  1. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility
