We’re pleased to announce that an official IADC Student Chapter has recently been established at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas! Our Student Chapter program is now up to 17 Chapters worldwide. Eight representatives from the newly established Texas Tech Chapter were able to attend the IADC Annual General Meeting last month. We’re looking forward to seeing how this Chapter grows and all the opportunities it will bring to the interested students at TTU!
About IADC Student Chapters
IADC’s Student Chapter program was started in 2017 when the need for a formal vehicle for engaging with the next generation of young professionals was identified. At that time, students were also expressing a desire for opportunities to engage with the drilling industry while still in school. The IADC Student Chapter program serves as a supplement to the academic aspect provided by the universities. The Chapters provide unique opportunities for students to learn about the practical side of the industry and their future professions. These opportunities generally consist of attending conferences, rig tours, and other industry events.
