Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)

The University of Oklahoma Student Chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (OU SPE) is a large and active organization designed to help any student interested in learning more about the Oil and Gas industry. As part of SPE International, we share their goal to disseminate and exchange technical knowledge concerning the exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, which is done through our bi-monthly Tech Talks.

In addition, OU SPE is dedicated to helping undergraduate and graduate petroleum-engineering students find full-time jobs and internships, so we collaborate with Career Services, energy companies, and the OKC SPE chapter to co-host networking and career fair prep opportunities throughout the year. We also host lunch and learns and tutoring courses to help students continue their learning outside of the classroom, as well as a wide variety of social events to help build a positive community within the college.

Every other week OU SPE hosts representatives from an oil and gas company to present a technical overview of a technology, concept, or common problem that they are working on. This gives students a chance to learn about how the concepts we are learning in the classroom apply to the field and real-world situations.

Tech Talks are hosted on Thursday evenings at 6:15-8:00pm in the National Weather Center.
