EMP Courses

The Energy Management Program consists of 18 credit hours and incorporates coursework in business, geoscience, law and petroleum engineering. During the summer session, EMP supplements the curriculum with industry guest speakers and energy site visits. All courses must be taken for a letter grade, and all must be passed with a C- or above to satisfy certification requirements. Students are allowed one full year after graduation to complete certificate coursework and submit a request to have it added to their UT transcript (certification appears only on your transcript--not your diploma). The diagram below illustrates the coursework required to complete the program:
