Your thoughts on a bs in mechE with a ms in petE?

  1. Jan 30, 2012 #1
    Is it possible if you just take the prerequisites at your grad school to hop from mechE to petroleum? I'm thinking if I go for mechE instead of aero for a broader job market that specializing my ms in petE might be a good idea.. What do you think?

    A second bachelor's degree is pointless.

    You'd have to speak with a graduate advisor. That industry would have mechanical, civil, and chemical engineers of various sorts. Your school (or other schools with similar programs) should be able to help you with this more than we can.
