Mining and Mineral Resources receives software donation

The Department of Mining and Mineral Resources Engineering recently received an in-kind commercial industry-standard engineering software donation totaling $22,400 from IHS, Inc. 

The software, “IHS Harmony™,” is a desktop engineering application for analyzing oil and gas well performance and evaluating well reserves, enhanced with a map-based interface. The software is for use in the classroom and in research applications to train students to use the software for production history matching and future production prediction. Access to state-of-the-art software is critical to providing students with skills that will benefit their careers in the energy field, Satya Harpalani, professor in the Mining and Mineral Resources Engineering department, said. 

The donation, received from the company’s University Grant Program, was procured from a request by Harpalani.  The company states it is a “leading source of critical information and insight from world-class experts in aerospace, defense and security, automotive, chemicals, energy, economics, geopolitical risk, maritime, sustainability, supply chain management and technology.”
