About Us


As the number of undergraduates enrolled surpasses 800, an honor society for petroleum engineers has become momentous in unifying like minds in the department. The goals of Phi Chapter are to foster loyalty, good fellowship and mutual cooperation. The society’s objectives are to create a closer bond between its student members, to broaden the scope of activities of members, and to maintain the high ideals and standards of the engineering profession.
