In their pursuit of a degree, today’s petroleum engineering students look for more than classroom lectures and laboratory activities. Future graduates must have strong networking skills and professional relationships, especially in the competitive sector of petroleum engineering. Student organizations, such as the Society of Petroleum Engineers at UENR, are increasingly providing social and professional ties that are comparable to those found in the professional area.

Founded in 1957, The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is the largest individual-member organization for managers, engineers, scientists and other professionals worldwide in the upstream oil and gas industry. With a membership of over 156,000 located in 154 countries, SPE has 203 sections and 383 student chapter with 72,000 student members. SPE-UENR is the SPE student chapter in the UENR.
