Marietta College Oil and Gas Technical Exhibition


Passion. Knowledge.Teamwork.


Sebastian Ziaja and Derek Krieg developed this potential idea in the Spring of 2017.  The idea quickly formed into the First Annual Marietta College Oil and Gas Technical Exhibition (MCOGTE). The two decided to expand the idea by joining their respective  student organizations on campus.  The American Association of Drilling Engineers and Energy Business Alliance leadership took to the challenge to expand the event into something to benefit people like them.  With a downturn in the industry, experience in oil and gas is hard to come by.  This event allows companies to bring hands on technology to Marietta College's campus and teach students things that their curriculum may not have the time to cover, but are just as essential to the industry. 


Be a part of MCOGTE

The people behind MCOGTE are dedicated to creating the largest networking event possible in the area for the students of Marietta College.
