Please join us for the AADE March Luncheon on March 23, 2023. 

Location: Hilton Garden Inn Southpointe - 1000 Corporate Drive, Canonsburg, PA 15317


We will have a trivia style oilfield game during the luncheon featuring the four student sections.  We will utilize Kahoot and the audience will be able to participate as well. Prizes will be awarded to both the student sections and the industry.


Poster contest participants (from our student sections) will be displaying their posters in the poster hall after the luncheon (1PM-2PM).  We invite you to stop by and discuss your thoughts on their work.  If you'd like to participate as a judge, please sign up.

JOB FAIR INFO:  PLEASE READ the description below of what students should be capable of at different points in their education.  

The job fair will begin around 1pm and last until 3pm.  The job fair will feature a casual networking environment.  You are welcome to set up a booth or roam. 

Please register through the event link as a job fair employer and then email to let us know if you are looking for Interns and/or new graduate full time hires. If you are able to provide additional information on the types of positions you are looking to fill we will share that with the petroleum engineering departments. Don't hesitate to email us with any questions.  We will keep you updated with our expected turnout as the timeline progresses.  All attendees will be petroleum engineer majors or similar.  


All proceeds go to the student sections and student participants in the form of prizes for participants, section funding for industry related activites, and helping to put on the job fair/luncheon.

Student Information:

Did you know Petroleum Engineering Students share coursework with Mechanical, Chemical, and Electrical Engineering majors? They also have studies in data analysis and statistics. They are motivated to work in the O&G industry and may be a great fit for your organization even in traditionally non-petroleum engineering roles.

Student highlights: Freshmen & Sophomore levels are most likely still learning about our industry & career opportunities. The Jr & Sr level have chosen our industry but still learning which path to take (service company, operator, drill, completions, production, reservoir, etc.). If we can get your company help, and get these students experience and knowledge within the industry its a win-win.  Freshmen: Will have taken classes in basic science & math, and will be proficient in Microsoft office. They usually are trying to decide if engineering is right for them. Any office admin, engineering shadowing, or operational field shadowing is best. Learning about the industry is and helping them choose the correct path is their main objective. ' Sophomores: By this point they have chosen engineering as a career path, but still deciding which discipline (mechanical, petroleum, chemical, civil, etc.). They have taken more advanced math, chemistry, & physics. They have also taken core engineering courses such as mechanics, electrical, etc. These interns can handle small projects, office admin, and engineering/field shadowing. Juniors: These students should have a clear path of petroleum engineering. They have begun petroleum specific classes and are learning more details of our industry. They will be looking to learn more about the various job opportunities and what they would like to do after graduation. These students are good for any project in the office, field, or engineering. These students' work ethic can highlight if it is someone you'd entertain to hire full time after graduation. Seniors: These students will be looking for either full time entry positions, or internships if they wish to apply for graduate school. They should have taken all of the petroleum engineering course work. They will be looking to apply their coursework and learn more about real life application of the topics they studied.
