Well im not in college yet but im am immensely interested in the oil industry. Of course I have barely any knowledge on oil but i think a career of finding and extracting the most important resource on earth would be very cool. Anyways im really stuck on majoring in petroleum engineering or chemical engineering.
Pros: Will be able to find upstream oil jobs (most interesting to me), higher starting salary
Cons: Very specialized field, oil industry may be gone in 20 years
Pros: Broad field where i can work on anything from pharmaceuticals to petroleum, good salary
Cons: Most likely will only get downstream jobs
As of now, im leaning more towards chemical engineering. Also, could you tell me about majoring in geology in terms of getting a job in the oil industry.
