"The Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Gulf Coast Section enhances technical knowledge among our members through local events, promotes camaraderie and networking in our industry, educates and serves the community, and provides scholarships to students entering the oil and gas industry."
The SPE-GCS Education Committee is responsible for determining the best use of Gulf Coast Section funds for recruiting and retaining students to be engineers for the oil and gas industry.
The Education Committee accomplishes this through support of various programs in the section's primary and secondary schools and engineering programs at the community college and university levels encouraging students to develop their abilities in math, science, and engineering through scholarships, internships, and outreach.
