Welcome Alumni and Friends,
Greetings from the Bob L. Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering. Our department is flourishing with record enrollments, alumni involvement and corporate participation. The importance of the petroleum engineering discipline continues as the petroleum industry flourishes. The new challenges in exploring and producing unconventional reservoirs increases the demand for engineers trained on the latest technology and with critical thinking ability.
The Texas Tech University Bob L. Herd Petroleum Engineering Department is growing stronger. The department is home to approximately 450 undergraduate students and more than 70 graduate. We currently have seven full time tenured and tenure-track faculty, three instructors, three adjunct professors and five full time staff members.
Progress continues on the construction of our new Petroleum Engineering Building on the Engineering Key. The building will include more than 40,000 square feet of modern classrooms, cutting edge laboratories, and administrative space that will certainly assist with the recruitment of students and internationally renowned faculty to further advance petroleum engineering.
The department is also actively searching for additional faculty members. The planned addition brings a great deal of experience to our department that to progress further in both research and teaching.
Thank you for your continued support of the department as we go forward to educate the petroleum industry personnel of tomorrow.
