These programs are based on a four-part webinar series, and are designed to prepare UH students for careers in energy, and for roles as future decision-makers within industry. Focusing on non-curricular aspects of leadership and team-building skills this non-credit program provides UH students with unique hands-on and practical information to further their career in the energy industry. The webinars feature some of the brightest minds of the marketplace. This educational opportunity will explore how the energy transition is transforming energy careers, as well as providing insights in leadership and team-building, which are crucial skills in the rapidly-changing energy industry.

Webinar Registration:
Webinar registration is open to all, but pre-registration is required: REGISTER NOW
After you complete and submit the registration form, you will receive a unique, personal Zoom link for all four webinars. Alternative joining options (e.g., dial-in) will also be provided.

Certificate in Energy Leadership Registration:
The Certificate in Energy Leadership is a non-credit certification open to UH students only. All candidates must register for the webinar series, attend at least three of the live webinars, and achieve passing grades in online tests. To enable us to verify attendance, certificate candidates must enter “UH” or “University of Houston” in the “Organization” field, and provide their student ID in the “Student ID” field when they register for the webinars. When joining each webinar, they must use their unique, personal Zoom link. Failure to follow these instructions may disqualify candidates from receiving their certificates. Candidates who are unable to fulfill all of the above requirements (e.g., they cannot attend the live webinars due to schedule conflicts) should contact the program coordinator, Alan Rossiter before the first webinar.

Webinar Recordings:
We plan to record each session in this 4-part series, and will make those recordings available a few days after each live event.
