Not all donations to the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering involve funding.

Software donations play a vital role in our classrooms. They allow our students to experience hands-on training using applications tailored to the oil and gas industry. These educational software grants, or licensing agreements, also benefit the donating company by introducing future petroleum engineers to their software.
