TCU Energy Institute

The TCU Energy Institute aims to improve the oil, gas and energy industry through cutting edge research, community education, outreach, academic programming and professional training. We also work to raise awareness of energy issues in our country, and help train more educated, involved professionals for the future generations of the industry.


Our staff members, students and community members are continually conducting research that changes the face of our industry. The Center for GIS and Remote Sensing, TCU Wind Initiative and TCU Core Lab offer on-campus research opportunities, while SEDHEAT, a partnership with the National Science Foundation, works to conduct research and raise awareness on both a national and international level.


We work to train the next general of energy professionals through our state-of-the-art academic programs and offerings. Currently, we offer a minor in Energy Technology & Management, as well as a variety of energy-focused academic courses. We also provide 17 scholarships, a number of certificate and professional programs, and plenty of research opportunities for our students to participate in.

Professional Training

We also work to further educate the public, existing energy professionals and other professionals on the national energy landscape. From programs for royalty and land owners to certificate courses for landmen and oil/gas representatives, our offerings run the gamut. We can even provide customized programming for individual companies and firms.
