Petroleum Engineering Schools in the United States

If the median salary is the only factor to consider, petroleum engineering is the best engineering discipline to focus on.  According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2012-13 Occupational Outlook Handbook, the median national annual salary for petroleum engineers is $122,280, significantly higher than most of the other engineering disciplines. Of course, actual salaries may vary greatly based on specialization within the field, location, years of experience and a variety of other factors.

Partly fueled by the rising global demand for oil and natural gas, employment of petroleum engineers is expected to grow 17 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Oil prices will be a major determinant of employment growth, as higher prices lead to increasing complexity of oil companies’ operations and require more engineers for each drilling operation.
