The thesis requirement of theĀ Energy & Earth Resources program serves as the culmination of the student’s education at the University of Texas at Austin. Students are able to choose a thesis topic based on their interests. Knowledge gained and professors met through EER courses often provide avenues for in-depth exploration. While usually written individually, some topics lend themselves to group projects in which students investigate components of a larger issue. These projects foster a team approach as students exchange information and ideas.
