As an SPE member, you gain access to technical talks by industry, the annual SPE Symposium, conferences around the world, social events, and many volunteer activities in the community. Being a part of SPE can also open doors to internships and jobs that may not be available otherwise.

For the Montana Tech SPE club to get gold standard, we need a certain percentage of our students to be enrolled in the club. This is crucial for us to stay competitive with other universities across the globe.

SPE is also a great way to interact with other petroleum students and learn what the oil and gas industry is all about.
