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 Department of Petroleum Engineering is growing stronger. We currently have 11 full time tenured and tenure-track faculty, two instructors, one adjunct professor, one emeritus professor, and five full time staff members.

The new Terry Fuller Petroleum Engineering Research Building on the Engineering Key is now complete. The building include more than 42,000 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.
