Abstract

Most of the major Universities teaching Petroleum Engineering encourage students to complete an internship before graduation. Two of the major schools, Texas A&M University and the University of Oklahoma require it before graduation. This paper will report the results of a survey of graduates in Petroleum Engineering on their experiences and career outcomes as they relate to internships. With this will be a report on the current enrollment in Petroleum Engineering at a majority of the schools offering a degree in this field. In conclusion the results will be combined along with comments from the survey participants to derive more options for students to obtain and participate in internships while in school.
