Career in Oil & Gas Industry Topic of Upcoming Panel Discussion

Current and Former Professionals from Anadarko, Chevron, Energy XXI, and ExxonMobil to Share Oct. 2

Discover the ‘in’s and out’s’ of the oil and gas industry during Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Petroleum Engineering Forum and Discussion Panel, on Wednesday, October 2, from 1-2:30 p.m., in the General Academic Center (Building G), Room 102.

The college’s Maverick Transfer, Recruitment, & Career (TRAC) Center is hosting current and former petroleum engineering industry leaders and professionals from Anadarko Petroleum Corporation, Chevron Corporation, Energy XXI, and ExxonMobil to discuss career options within the engineering field. They’ll share their personal journeys and tell students how to prepare for entrance into the oil and gas workforce.
 
The panel is geared for pre-engineering and other interested students, but the community is welcome to attend.
 
Facilitators for the panel are Mike Krall, interim dean for LSC-Montgomery’s natural sciences and health division, and David Quarles, professor of mathematics and engineering at LSC-Montgomery. Both Krall and Quarles hold engineering degrees from Texas A&M University.
 
As the engineering industry continues to grow, LSC-Montgomery is providing students opportunities to explore this thriving field. The day before the forum, on Tuesday, October 1, the Maverick TRAC Center will host a Transfer Tuesday event highlighting various colleges of engineering from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in the atrium of the Health Science Center (Building B). Representatives from local universities will be on campus to answer questions and provide program specific information regarding transferring into their engineering program.
 
Additionally, last spring, LSC-Montgomery began offering Introduction to Engineering (ENGR 1201), a primer course geared for students interested in pursuing a degree in engineering at a four-year university. The course lays the foundation for an aspiring engineer by introducing them to the engineering profession, the various engineering disciplines, and the engineering analysis and design process.
