What is a process within the cell of an organism that uses glucose and oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water, and energy called?

It could be called oxidation (by a chemist), or metabolism (by a biologist). The body metabolizes glucose in various ways. See

The process is usually more complicated than you have indicated, with lactic acid or ATP as intermediate products.
