Where can i find an on shore petroleum engineering job? What States? Also what is the pay for on shore jobs obviuosly they are less than off shore? And also will there me a lot of jobs in PA, WV, and OH because of the marcellus shale boom?
I heard most petroleum engineers (especially expats) find it difficult to find a job in Australia.
Is this true?
I also have heard stories saying it is very easy to find petroleum engineering jobs in Australia and it's a rewarding carreer dow there.
I have a Bsc in Petroleum Engineering form Wyoming University USA. Hoping to move to Australia next year.
Are petroleum engineering jobs all going to be taken by petroleum engineering grads and other disciplines with high gpa's? Also my degree is from Mizzou, will that hurt me that its not from a top engineering school in the long run?
I need something include Mining & petroleum engineering jobs.
Petroleum engineering jobs, where is a good site?
I'm considering getting a Master's degree in Petroleum engineering. I think the projects are interesting. However, I'm not sure what the job outlook will be in the 10 years. Do any petro engineers out there know about this? Is it easy to find a job?
Besides the travelling to remote areas, why is petroleum engineering a high paid job? Thanks.
Im going to be a freshman in college and i'm enrolled in air force rotc. I was pursuing a career in petroleum engineering and was wondering if any of the branches have a job as a petroleum engineer. I want to be an officer. I know that the navy has a strong nuclear program but what about petroleum?
I know engineers have a huge job market, and likely an expanding job. Petroleum engineers specifically I have heard get paid very generously. How hard is it to obtain a degree in engineering? Petroleum engineering industry to be more specific? To obtain a bachelors degree in this field, will I have to take very advanced sciences and math? If so, how advanced? Any information would be greatly appreciated. (about petroleum engineering, or just engineering in general)
I am 19 and wanted to learn more about this trade as a possibility for college.
Can I become a Petroleum Engineer with A Technical Certificate in Petroleum Engineering?
What if get a job and work my way up?

I wanted to be a petroleum engineer due to its high salary, but am unsure if it's worth it.
Is it worth it? Is it fun?
Aeronautical engineering doesn't have a salary as high, but it seems like a fun job.
I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids. I suppose both jobs would accept this type of person.
Which of those jobs has a better hiring rate?
My career goal is to become a petroleum engineer. It is a high paying and interesting career in my opinion. My plan is to get a masters in petroleum engineering, but in the meantime get a bachelors in chemical or mechanical engineering. What I'm wondering is what undergrad degree should i pursue. Would the job of a petroleum engineer differ depending on the undergrad degree or not. Also, what type of education would be good for petroleum engineer looking to work in research and development.
I just realized that I wanted to do petroleum engineering as opposed to what I previously wanted to, mechanical engineering. However, I've already applied to college. Only one of them offers petroleum engineering as a major, but I don't know if I'll go there. The rest offer only chemical engineering, but can I get a job as a petroleum engineer with that degree?
I am about to join college and i have opted for petroleum engineering and was wondering how easy it would be when i would have graduated to land a job in canada
I am a California resident and want to work as a petroleum engineer. There are no PetE undergrad programs in CA. I don't have the funds to move to Texas for a few years to get a petroleum engineering degree at one of the schools there. However, there are many ABET accredited engineering universities here in CA and I can complete a bachelors in mechanical engineering here. If I graduate, get my ME degree, and intern in a major oil company for 3-4 months, would I be able to get an upstream petroleum engineering position (drilling & completions, production, or reservoir) or would the companies hiring me look at my ME degree and restrict me to a mechanical engineering or facilities engineering job? If they would hire me for the PetE job, would they pay exactly the same as someone also fresh out of school but with a petroleum engineering degree?
I know these are specific issues ultimately up to the whims of these companies but try to answer based off of what you've seen and know if you are in the industry.
Thanks big time.
I've read a few articles that claim petroleum engineering isn't really a stable engineering field because just as the oil prices rise and fall the need and jobs of PE rises and falls.
I want to be a Petroleum engineer when i am older. I am only a freshman in highschool. I would like to know if WVU is good place to learn about being a petroleum engineer. Will it give a lesser chance of getting a job as one, if i go there instead of texas a&m which alot of people have said that is the best college to get a degree in petroleum engineering. Also what Highschool classes should i take for my future career(hopefully). I live in Maryland, so i dont realy feel like leaving too far away from my family
During college what kind of classes are required for a petroleum engineering career (physics based, chemistry based etc)? And more specifically, what kind of mathematical operations are used in the job (calculus, geometry, trigonometry etc)?
I am a Junior in high school now, taking AP Physics and pre AP Alg II. I'm deciding if petroleum engineering is a good career for me.
Mechanical engineers are known as being the "master engineer." So how broad is their spectrum for work? It's obvious a mechanical engineer cannot do an electrical/computer engineer's job. But what about a mechanical engineer doing a petroleum engineer's job? If you could give me some examples of jobs a mechanical engineer CAN do and cannot do.
