Specific Degree Information:

The Certificate of Technical Studies in Oil and Gas Production Technology is a 33- semester hour curriculum to prepare students for careers in the oil and gas industry. The oil and gas boom has resulted in increased demand for workers in this and other related positions. The new programs are, in large part, a response to the tremendous increase in job opportunities created by the exploration and increasing significance of the Haynesville Shale natural reserve in northwest Louisiana.
