IADC/SPE International Drilling Conference and Exhibition


Drillbotics® is an international competition for university students requiring hands-on experience by petroleum, mechanical, electrical, and control engineers who must build and operate a lab-scale working drilling rig. Students develop experience working in multi-disciplinary teams, which is important in today's technology driven industries. More information, photos, and videos are available at www.Drillbotics.com.

The 2018-2019 winning team from the University of Oklahoma will present their design and lessons learned in a paper at the IADC/SPE International Conference in Galveston.
