The coronavirus pandemic and related stagnant oil prices haven’t changed two key factors for the energy industry’s future – the transition to more sustainable sources of energy and the growing use of data.
Workers need to understand sustainable energy development and the industry’s expanding use of data analytics more than ever as companies shed jobs because of low prices for oil and gas. The University of Houston will offer two micro-credentialing programs targeting those skills, with the first round of online classes beginning later this month.
The programs are in Upstream Data Analytics, presented in partnership with NExT, a training company owned by Schlumberger, and Sustainable Energy Development. Registration and more information is available here for data analytics and here for sustainable energy development.
