Energy Technology


The Energy Technology program prepares students for careers as lease operators and general field technicians within the oil and gas industry. Other career paths may require students to perform different functions as members of an oil and/or gas production team.

The curriculum is designed to provide training in the electrical and mechanical aspects of the installation, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of control systems and surface equipment used in petroleum exploration and production.

The AAS in Petroleum Energy Technology coursework will be a combination of core academic courses and highly specialized technical classes. Safety practices and training are an important part of the program. Communication, leadership, and teamwork concepts are fundamental to the hands on laboratory which are incorporated.
