The petroleum land management concentration provided me with a great introduction in the oil and gas industry. Classes taught by industry professionals gave me a real-life insight to a career in oil and gas. It also provided me with examples of where a career in land management could lead. Professors took the time to answer practical questions and teach concepts that could be applied on the job. Through the petroleum land management concentration, I established a great network of friends and learned the value of industry contacts.
