Discover Your Future in Energy

We invite you to consider your future in the energy industry! The School of Energy Resources teaches students to understand and solve the increasing energy challenges in Wyoming, the nation and the world.

Energy issues are complex and there is a greater demand for professionals with a multidisciplinary background. These professionals are able to understand and draw on the expertise of engineers and other energy scientists. Students with the School of Energy Resources learn the business, legal, social and public policy implications of a given project. 

Students take a core curriculum focusing in business, natural resources, law and policy, project management, risk analysis and mathematics. Our program offers two concentrations for specialization, Professional Land Management or Energy Land and Water Management.

Professional Land Management (Landman) Concentration

Landman professionals have an important role in maintaining sound stewardship of energy resources and applying knowledge in energy, geology, business, law, economics, finance and regulatory policy.

Landmens' unique set of skills allow them to make economic business decisions, understand the laws and regulations relating to energy development, and recognize the importance of negotiating for resources while maintaining good relationships with landowners. Our program emphasizes communication, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. Learn more

Energy Land and Water Management Concentration

Environmental scientists and environmental restoration planners use their knowledge of natural resources to protect the environment during energy development.

The comprehensive development and management of energy resources is dependent upon the sustained stewardship of land and water. Energy asset production requires careful consideration of environmental impacts on the complex interactions between flora, fauna, and the physical environment. Effective and environmentally sound application of emerging technologies such as hydraulic fracturing, CO2 storage, and wind/solar farm placement and operations begin with consideration of land and water resources.
