  1. Meeting the Challenge: Next Generation ProfessionalEnergy Workforce Development Ali Daneshy, Director Petroleum Engineering Program University of Houston November 3, 2005 Energy Workforce Development Conference Global Energy Management Institute Bauer College of Business, University of Houston 4/28/05

  2. Energy Technical Manpower Supply It is broken!! How do we fix it

  3. Essence of The Globalization Challenge • Innovation -- critical to long term business viability • Technical innovation -- key to competitiveness • Skilled leadership – key to successful execution of innovation • Traditional “learn-as-you-go” too slow for today’s speed-of-change Discovery Development Implementation “Value-Add” = Innovation =

  4. Key to Effective Mobilization:a Strong Skilled Workforce Development Pipeline • Greater throughput at every stage • Greater flow through CC’s into universities • Greater movement into energy-related disciplines • Next generation global competitiveness skills throughout pipeline Must achieve:

  5. High-Valued Interface Accelerators Industry Internship University Community College High School

  6. Petroleum Engineering Program at University of Houston Aligning curricula with careers

  7. PE Internship Program • Attract top quality engineering students into the PE program • Provide an early link between these students and oil and gas companies in the Houston metropolitan area • Provide financial assistance to students • Offer industry high quality potential future employees • Enlarge the pool of talent available for employment in the oil and gas industry

  8. Program Structure • The internship is offered to all engineering students starting at Junior level • Students get a BS in the original field of engineering and then continue to earn an MS degree in Petroleum Engineering. • Students finish the MS requirements one year after the BS degree
