    I was speaking to someone earlier about doing Petroleum Engineering as a career path and he advised me to do 3 year BEng at Manchester and 1 year MSc at ICL. There's two ways I could either do my degree; 4 straight years MEng at Manchester or the above.

    Which one is better overall?

    Again it depends on what YOU prefer and what YOU want to do.

    If you are pretty sure you want to work in the petroleum industry most of your life then stick with the MEng (or BEng) in petroleum eng, it won't really matter which you do(in terms of BEng or MEng) but it would put you in the best position for some of the petroleum specialised roles as your degree would contain very specific skill sets to that area.

    If however on the other hand you want more job variety (and stability) then I would recommend studying a "general discipline" such as chemical eng/mechanical eng and then having an MSc in petroleum that way you keep more options open should you want to change career. Hope that helps
