Petroleum Engineering Celebrates New Research Facility

The Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering today (Feb. 27) celebrated the completion of its new $22.8 million research facility with a ribbon-cutting ceremony, merging technological advancement with the excitement of future generations.

Funded entirely by industry and private contributions, the Terry Fuller Petroleum Engineering Research Building is named in recognition of lead benefactors and Texas Tech University graduates, Terry and Linda Fuller of Frisco, Texas, following a long-standing practice of honoring donors who contribute more than half the construction costs of a new building.
