The purpose of the Organization is to promote multiple connections between students, scholars and professionals for the sake of sharing ideas and building a strong knowledge on rock mechanics engineering through organizing meetings, short courses, workshops, quarterly student competition.
This organization is part of the bigger professional body of the American Rock Mechanics association. The American Rock Mechanics Association (ARMA) is a professional and international engineering and scientific society, which promotes interaction among specialists, practitioners, scholars, and educators in rock mechanics and geomechanics. We advocate for individuals and firms in all aspects of rock mechanics and geomechanics, including multi-disciplinary rock physics and rock engineering technology advancement and technological applications for civil engineering, mining engineering and tunneling, oil and gas recovery, and geo-related socioeconomic problem-solving. We provide a forum and information resources for our members, related organizations, and the public, while our strong student membership ensures future continuity.
International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC)
The UND IADC Student Chapter is established to provide student interactions with drilling professionals and other educational opportunities involved the technological and safety advancements in the oil and gas industry.
The UND IADC Student Chapter was registered with UND in August 2020. Our focus as a student chapter here at UND is to work directly with the UND Petroleum Engineering Department and with the non-profit trade association, IADC (International Association of Drilling Contractors). Together we are working towards educating students about technological advancements, safety, and new publications regarding the drilling industry. We continually promote student involvement around campus, and are always searching for future opportunities for students to network within the drilling industry.
Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG)
SEG UND Student Chapter is to promote interest in, and knowledge of the sciences of geophysics and allied sciences, and to promote friendship and cooperation among those interested in the geophysical sciences.
This organization is part of the bigger professional body of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, bring together a group of like−minded individuals who share common interest in geophysics, sharing the benefits of being a member will encourage the students to belong to this body. Leadership role will be spread across all levels and diversity for sustainability and growth. Plan technical programs ahead and getting students to share their research in annual meetings.
Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
SPE Student Chapters exist to further the mission and vision of SPE by providing local knowledge sharing of subjects relating to the oil and gas industry through meetings and programming for members of the student chapter. An SPE student membership is a requirement for membership to the student chapter. The student membership qualifications include university enrollment of at least 30% of a normal full-time academic load and have a concentration in petroleum or a related field, and either pursue the equivalent of a bachelor’s or graduate degree or attend a university with an established SPE student chapter.
