Education, Training & Outreach

Faculty and researchers from the Center for Subsurface Energy and the Environment work with numerous UT Austin faculty, as well as colleagues from other universities, to share knowledge with a variety of stakeholder groups. The Education, Training & Outreach program is led by Dr. Hilary Olson in the Hildebrand Department of Petroleum & Geosystems Engineering. Our faculty and researchers provide trusted knowledge while participating in the national and global conversations on energy.
