For more than a decade, the TCU Energy Institute has been a vital resource to prepare students for careers in the energy industry. Today I am pleased to announce its next chapter: a transition from the College of Science & Engineering to the Neeley School of Business.
This strategic move to the Neeley School of Business will allow the TCU Energy Institute to equip the next generation of energy leaders with vital business acumen to enhance their success. The strong partnerships and connections formed through the College of Science & Engineering will remain; their talented instructors will continue to provide expertise in geology, environmental sciences and engineering, all critical to the success of an interdisciplinary energy institute. The institute’s physical location will remain in Rees-Jones Hall.
TCU Energy Institute, part of the Neeley School of Business is located on the first floor of Rees-Jones Hall, Suite 105, on the campus of Texas Christian University, Fort Worth, Texas.
A brief history: The rapid and unexpected discovery of domestic oil and gas – particularly in Texas – has led to unique opportunities within the state’s energy industry over the past few decades. As a proactive response to these opportunities, TCU created the Energy Institute. Since 2007, TCU Energy Institute has promoted energy research and knowledge about the energy industry, energy management, and energy-related technology through an integrated approach, providing a unique opportunity for students, faculty, professionals, and industry partners to examine the future of energy resources.
