How do I Join the Chapter?

What is SPE?
If you're interested in the petroleum industry than the SPE student chapter can help you learn and grow. Lunch & Learns are hosted by various companies throughout the year to both reinforce what students learn in the classroom, and see what challenges industry is facing today. We have many fundraising, and social events where students can meet industry professionals. In the Fall, CSM-SPE members can receive subsidized travel to the Annual Technical Conference and Exhibition (ATCE) to listen to lectures by professionals, compete/cheer on the schools team in the PetroBowl (Champs: 2006, 2012, 2013), and visit the exhibition hall where the newest technologies in industry can be viewed. 

Why should I join CSM-SPE?

  • Regular Lunch & Learns with speakers from industry (free lunch!)
  • Networking opportunities with fellow students and industry professionals
  • Having fun! (Bowling Night! Golf Tournament! Clay Shoot!)
