Young Professionals in Energy Collegiate at Pitt, Introduction and Informational Session

As a graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh, you are invited to
be part of a global initiative extended exclusively to talented graduate
students in the city of Pittsburgh. Student leaders from Pitt Law, Pitt’s
Katz Graduate School of Business, Pitt’s Swanson School of Engineering,
and Carnegie Mellon have teamed up to provide opportunities for young
professionals interested careers in the energy sector through Young
Professionals in Energy (YPE). YPE is an international non-profit
networking organization that is composed of over 20,000 energy
professionals that are committed to success in all facets of the industry.
The organization operates 20 chapters around the world including one right
here in Pittsburgh. The YPE-Collegiate Chapter at Pitt marks the first
initiative to include students in the global network of YPE with the goal
of developing them to become future energy leaders in the Greater
Pittsburgh area and beyond. By becoming the world’s first YPE affiliated
student organization, we are able to act as a catalyst for industry
relations and allow our members to develop industry connections before
ever leaving academia. As a member of YPE-Pitt, students will have access
to year round networking events, speeches, and conferences coordinated by
both the collegiate organization and the YPE-Pittsburgh professional
chapter. Members will be invited to company site visits, networking
receptions, and club social events.
Our immediate goal is to rapidly integrate the multiple schools at Pitt
to create a multi-disciplinary member base. An information session will
be held in the Barco Law Building Room 109 on March 26th from 12-1pm
for all interested graduate students. Lunch will be provided courtesy of
the student board with representatives from each school on hand to answer
If you are unable to join us for the meeting but wish to be involved with
the organization, let us know! Send a note to and we
will keep you up to date about upcoming news and events. We would love to
have you as part of the organization as we develop the next generation of
industry leaders.

We look forward to meeting all of you!
