I've recently become interested in switching majors from Math to Petroleum engineering. I have no idea what one would do as a petroleum engineer though. I realize that it's very restricting location wise but that's about it.

The pay is good right out of college but my idea with a degree in maths was to get into finance. Which line of work do you think would ultimately end up with a higher salary?
