Find a Supervisor

Graduate Studies Committee

The following faculty and research scientists are members of the Energy and Earth Resources Graduate Studies Committee. GSC members may serve as supervisors for EER master’s thesis research and chair the student’s supervisory committee. Other UT faculty and research scientists may serve as a co-supervisor of EER student thesis research with a EER GSC member. EER students must develop a thesis proposal, including identifying a supervisor and committee, during their second semester.
