Texas A&M Energy Research Society

The Texas A&M Energy Research Society (ERS) is a community established by the Texas A&M Energy Institute for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows conducting energy-related research under an Energy Institute faculty affiliate.

ERS aims to create a dynamic and synergistic environment within Texas A&M University through technical and social events. As the members of the society prepare to launch their careers in academia, industry, or government, ERS will organize events to showcase energy-related research at Texas A&M, promote collaborations, and enhance interactions with industrial communities.
