M.S. Natural Gas Engineering and Management (online)

The M.S. Natural Gas Engineering and Management (NGEM) online program is designed to integrate the technical and commercial aspects of natural gas into a graduate degree program. The intent is to provide post-graduate education to qualified students and further prepare them with technical skills and commercial knowledge to fill the demand for professionals in the rapidly growing natural gas industry without interupting their current careers or their families.

The NGEM program provides individuals with a system view of the full-value chain of natural gas. It also emphasizes leadership training and teamwork among technical and commercial professionals. No other online master´s degree with an emphasis on natural gas is presently offered by any state university in Oklahoma, the nation, or the world.
