As the SPE student chapter at University of Waterloo, we strive to enhance the professional and social bond between University of Waterloo students, SPE and the oil and gas industry. We see this link as being vitally important to both students and employers, as each has a fundamental need for the other. Part of our directive is also to create a social network among the students at University of Waterloo interested in the oil and gas industry learn about and connect with the industry as well as one another. We work to bridge the gap between student interest and industry awareness through our technical presentations, scholarship programs, ambassador lectures, career fairs, research seminars, and field trips.
Student members receive discounted registration to SPE-related events and special pricing on textbooks, reference books, and other society publications.
SPE awards more than a half million dollars annually to support the education of graduate and undergraduate students pursuing degrees related to the oil and gas industry.
Meet and interact with practicing industry professionals at local section events, SPE International meetings and other venues.
