Educating and preparing engineers for the 21 Century requires adequate changes in the style we teach and demonstrate knowledge, concepts and their application under complex conditions. Energy industry is undergoing fundamental changes globally, which needs to be transferred into the classroom, in order to enable future engineers to be prepared for contemporary issues in all aspects of oil and gas industry, especially exploration and production. One of the areas to be addressed at the LSU Petroleum Engineering is how we teach laboratory classes in order to prepare our students to easily adopt new safety requirements implemented in industry. In addition to technical competency required for high safety standards, it is also critical to develop a certain kind of behavior that will ensure acts of responsible, ethical decision making and leadership in the work place.
