    Hi

    Assuming you are graduating/graduated with a Chemistry degree, what do you plan to do with it?

    Would be nice of you to kindly let us know where you are studying/have studied.




    Thanks

    Have you not seen Breaking bad? That's exactly what to do with a Chemistry degree.

    I don't think there is much to do without further study, as I plan to either do MSc in Petroleum Engineering or Intellectual Property Law. Quite possibly a PhD relevant to get into Pharmaceutical Consulting....

    where are you all studying?

    Would it be possible to go into Engineering Consultancy with a Chemistry degree?


    If so, what other qualifications or experience would you need?

    Yes. As long as the consultancy concerned was working in areas where there was a need for chemists (such as process, water treatment, etc.).

    If so, what other qualifications or experience would you need?
    Well, assuming you are going for graduate entry, then none.

    Studying Chemistry and then going into Engineering Consultancy sounds interesting...
    How could you go about doing this? I'm assuming you would have to do some sort of MSc in a type of engineering after your BSc or something?

    I didn't (I work in an in-house consultancy for a major utility firm). You just have to be looking for more specialised roles that accept chemistry as one of the disciplines (such as water treatment, or gas seperation etc.) i.e. you aren't going to become a civil engineer with a chemistry degree. Or, get a graduate role with a major industrial firm (such as a utility) and gain some experience before looking for work in consultancy. I know plenty of chemists in what would be considered engineering consultancy roles within the power sector, for example.

    Are their any routes specific to the oil and gas field?

    Check the major's (e.g. shell, bp, etc.) websites for career information. I know a guy who was taken as a trainee drilling engineer by shell with a chemistry background. There are plenty of jobs in oil and gas for chemists doing chemistry anyway.
