    Hello all. I am very confused in choosing where to study : Heriot-Watt, Aberdeen or Robert Gordon Uni.

    If people who studied there for the same MSc please state it in your answer and support it, because all I ever find is that HW>Aberdeen>RGU, cause of the guardian listing. Which IMO is silly.

    All 3 of them are highly respected in the O&G sector?
    The modules of each uni are a bit different to one another but still u end up with the same knowledge and can work in same position more or less, no matter where u studied?
    What would you say are the biggest differences between these unis for this MSc?
    All 3 unis got important companies visiting for career day?

    Thank you

    Yes.

    The biggest difference is the difference between Oil & Gas Engineering and Petroleum Engineering. PE is a very niche area in the industry, whereas O&G engineering will help prepare you for just about any engineering position (included petroleum, but it's probably much easier to get into that with a PE MSc).

    I would advise you to do some more research about where you want to go in the industry, as that will help greatly when it comes to selecting the right MSc.

    Yes.

    I would like to work n the upstream sector preferably, I don't know if i will change my mind during my studies, plus i like travelling.
    Since oil and gas engineering includes petroleum and other sectors, will I be considered the same as a MSc PE engineer?
    I have done research but there is nothing definitive between O&G engineering and PE Engineering. Seems alike but probably it's not. From your experience, if you have, can you give me some more details on to what to expect when I finish either MSc program?
