For service by a non-member in the development of new material, equipment, techniques, philosophy or management related to engineering, geology or geophysics, Chomiak has actively supported APEGA through his efforts to increase awareness of the role of professional engineers and their contributions to society. He has long been an advocate for consulting engineers and has worked hard to raise the profile of both engineering projects and professional engineers in Alberta and abroad.
The new Berg-Hughes Center for Petroleum and Sedimentary Systems will integrate the study of geology, geophysics and petroleum engineering at Texas A&M, giving students the interdisciplinary foundation they need to be successful in the petroleum industry. Additionally, it will provide the research focus and resources faculty need to develop integrated petroleum solutions. The goal of the center is to link faculty researchers with scientists and engineers in the energy industry so that together they can educate a new generation of petroleum and sedimentary geologists, geophysicists and engineers who are capable of meeting the nation’s energy challenges by working on interdisciplinary teams to tackle real world problems.
