The Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy provides an academic environment for the development of tomorrow's academic and industry leaders that contains the full breadth of the University of Oklahoma's educational experience while continuing to provide close ties to engineering fundamentals and the science base in geology and geophysics.

About MCEE

Founded in 1900 by Charles Gould, the ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics has been a leader in the Geological Sciences for over a century. Geologists and geophysicists investigate the processes that shape the Earth; analyze Earth history; predict future geologic events; search for new sources of energy, water and other natural resources; and endeavor to protect the quality of Earth’s environment.  Geology focuses on the structure and interactions of the Earth’s minerals and rocks, while geophysics applies mathematics, physics and modeling to study the interior and electromagnetic and gravitational fields of the Earth.

Petroleum is synonymous with energy. Over 70 percent of the energy used in the United States originates from oil and natural gas. Petroleum engineering is a multifaceted discipline that is directed toward capitalizing on natural resources.  Petroleum engineers may work on specific production-related challenges in a technical area or may work to solve broad technical challenges within an organization. Students excel due to state-of-the-art laboratories, top paying summer internships, substantial scholarship support and both domestic and international opportunities.

Mewbourne College of Earth & Energy

In a progressive move by the University signaling its ongoing commitment to energy education and research, the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy was established January 1, 2006.  

Included in the college are the Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering, the ConocoPhillips School of Geology and Geophysics, and the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

The schools are consistently rated among the top five petroleum engineering, petroleum geology and geophysics programs in the country. The Mewbourne College focus is laboratory ‘hands-on’ education and is an academic leader for end-to-end energy education and research.  Distinguished faculty, exceptional students, and state-of-the-art research laboratories are the bedrock of the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy.
