Engineering Petroleum and Aerospace Engineering DifferenceS

  1. Jul 9, 2012 #1
    Hi, I am trying to decide between Aerospace and Petroleum engineering an dwas looking for what the differences in the jobs are. Things like work environment, pay, travel, degrees needed, and prospective outlook of each field. Also can a bachelors degree suffice or is a masters needed and are there research positions available for each?

    Thank you for your time.

    Every one of these things will vary based on the type of job you would like to get within these broad disciplines.

    I'd say petrolium engineering would require more travel and field work, but I cannot say for sure, and I bet there are Pet.Engineers who have never seen a site.
