    Hi everyone,
    I was wondering if I would be able to do petroleum engineering Msc with a chemistry degree?
    We have modules regarding separation, chemical reactions etc and my dissertation is related to petroleum and separation processes as well.
    Most unis say they accept science degrees but I’m just not sure if chemistry is one of them.
    Thank you

    It is a science degree indeed but what I meant was that if it can be a chemistry degree ( since some unis require math or physics degree for petroleum engineering) or a chemical engineering degree.

    If it says you need a science degree then chemistry will be fine.

    In terms of requirement yes, I think you meet the requirement. But the truth is your educational background, has nothing to do with the major topics in petroleum engineering. You definitely can do it considering your knowledge background, but it will be a very busy year for you. Separation, Chemical reactions etc is not petroleum engineering but rather chemical engineering.

    But a lot of people are jumping on the electric vehicle hype. Some countries are thinking of banning fossil based cars etc. Also unlike mech and aero petroleum is too specific you can’t transfer the skill anywhere if you get stuck. There’s almost no reason to major in petroleum

    Not in the next couple of years lol. And even if petrol and diesel cars are banned entirely, that's not the only use for fossil fuels.

    That's not true at all. Plenty of engineering positions will accept any engineering degree - you're by no means limited to petroleum.

    Lol have you graduated with an engineering job? Or you’re one of those peoples with the misconception about engineering about how it makes you so diverse you can get any job 😂

    I have a job lined up for when I graduate this year.

    Engineering is a very diverse degree but there's a big difference between having the minimum requirements for a job and actually getting an offer. Petroleum engineering will open loads of doors but you still need to make yourself stand out although the same is true for mech and aero so I'm not entirely sure what your point was.
