Donor Information


A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Donors:

It goes without saying that it is donors and sponsors like you that made our Oilfield Technology Center possible. Your contributions are enabling us to give students hands-on experiences that are offered nowhere else in the country. Over the last several years, donations have come in many forms. From funding, equipment, labor, and expertise, every single action has brought us closer to our goal. We cannot express our gratitude enough. Because of your efforts, we have made enormous progress in our curriculum, and we are so excited for the future of our students.

From all of us here at the Bob. L Herd Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas Tech, thank you.
