The Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (PNGE) program at Saint Francis University was founded in fall 2014. On May 13th, the first two students in the four-year undergraduate program, Zachary Rohland and John Sheesley, graduated. Now that the first students have graduated, Saint Francis University will be seeking accreditation by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Future graduation classes expect to be comprised of roughly 15 students per year.

Both PNGE graduates have secured positions in the field of Engineering. Zachary Rohland has accepted a summer internship position as an HSE Engineer with CNX Resources. John Sheesley has accepted a full-time position as a Field Technician at Universal Pressure Pumping.

"We are very proud of Johnny and Zach. They have shown that hard work pays off. They always strive to be the best engineers they can be, and use their skills to help our community. They truly embody the 'become that someone' motto at Saint Francis University. We will miss them dearly and wish them all the best as they begin a new chapter in their life." said Dr. Alireza Shahkarami.
