Biomed, Mining, and Petro Engineering Differences

  1. Aug 15, 2012 #1
    Oops, I put this thread in academic guidance rather than career guidance. I'll do a copy and paste.

    Hey, I've been thinking about my future lately, as a senior in high school. I definitely want to become an engineer, but not sure what type. My scope of field I want to join varies as you can see. I like earth sciences quite a bit, so I thought of mining and petro engineering, but from what I have read "family" and those fields don't mix too well.
    I guess I just want to know some major differences, you know, why I'd aim for those specific degrees rather than an electrical or mechanical degree.
