The EER Difference

EER students and graduates are …

Leaders in energy & earth resources

Leadership requires broad perspective. The highly flexible EER curriculum draws on business, policy, economics, law, geoscience, and engineering—to expand knowledge and prepare professionals who can see the forest for the trees.

Innovators crossing disciplines

Students come to EER with experience in at least one discipline. They graduate ready to combine insights from business, science, engineering, law, and policy to rise above bureaucratic silos and achieve success.

Engaged with thought leaders

UT Austin’s broad and deep faculty has made it America’s energy university, with a tradition of leadership in all subjects related to oil and gas and emerging leadership in new areas of energy, environment and Earth resources.

Networked for opportunities

EER leverages the University of Texas at Austin’s outstanding networks in energy, environment, and resource management to help students explore internship and research opportunities while advancing their present careers or launching new ones.
