Partnership provides students interested in energy careers experiential learning as part of the Energy Commerce program
HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Quorum Software, the leader in digital transformation for the oil and gas industry, recently donated student licenses of its myQuorum Land Management Software to the Texas Tech University Rawls College of Business. This partnership provides students interested in energy career opportunities experiential learning as part of the Energy Commerce program. myQuorum Land Management Software serves as the foundation for a new course, Energy Systems, that teaches the practical application of concepts in Petroleum Land Management. The course first launched in the spring semester of 2020.
“Not only do we see digital transformation taking place in Oil and Gas, but we are also experiencing a generational shift as Generation Z enters the workforce,” said Olivier Thierry, CMO of Quorum Software. “The college class of 2020 grew up amidst a severely depressed economy and oil prices, and they enter the workforce during a global pandemic. As we enter a new normal that includes staying connected while working from home, the energy professionals of the future are in a unique position to embrace new technology-driven modes of work,” continued Thierry. “Quorum is uniquely positioned to help universities such as Texas Tech provide their students modern, web-based software for practical learning, whether that happens in a classroom or remotely.”
Led by assistant professor Jeremy Martin, J.D., Texas Tech began exploring land management software as an opportunity to enhance hands-on learning, a cornerstone of the Energy Commerce program. As oil and gas software evolves towards digital transformation, there is a clear opportunity for Quorum to collaborate with one of the leading energy education programs to gather feedback from the next generation of land professionals.
“Technology continues to advance, and I know from prior experience that software can make life easier in land management,” said Jeremy Martin, Texas Tech. “During my time working as a land professional in Oil and Gas, I had seen Quorum’s land software at times and really liked the ease of use and intuitiveness. I knew Quorum would be a great fit for our students, and that they have unique technology perspectives to share in return.”
