:: UT Continuing & Innovative Education’s (CIE) 100th Anniversary
In 1910, CIE was created by the University’s Board of Regents “to make the university more useful to the people of Texas.” Continuing education programs were soon developed to make education accessible to all persons, at any age or education level, who seek new ways to find deeper understanding, richer experiences, and a better life.
In 2010, CIE celebrates its 100th anniversary on our campus by asking the question, “How do you fill 100 years?” Since its inception, this division has been defined by the people whose lives have been changed or touched by continuing education. For 100 days, starting March 1 through July 16, visitors to CIE’s new 100-Year Blog will find a daily story introducing our current students, faculty, staff, and programs. These stories illustrate the continuing legacy of CIE’s commitment to education, innovation, and personal fulfillment.
As a component of CIE, PETEX is well-represented on the blog with profiles of client Gary Ware of Zurich Global Energy, content contributors such as Dr. Michael Webber of the University’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, and PETEX staff member and project manager Zahid Yoosufani, as well as other PETEX stories and profiles. We invite you to join the celebration by visiting the 100-Year Blog at http://www.utexas.edu/cie/stories and browsing the Archives section.
“PETEX courses I have attended have given me a wealth of information, all of which I use on a day-to-day basis—from the well drilling process itself to being able to read and understand an oilwell plan. I believe that I would not have been able to get to where I am now [in my career] without attending both of the PETEX courses.” — Gary Ware of Zurich Global Energy
