Geology/Geology and Petroleum engineering in Pakistan


Sir, I am asad from karachi Pakistan I have a question that if I will do b.s. in geology than I will took m.s. in petroleum technology. Is there will be any issue for that for job in the future or this is not a good idea. And what is geology? Is there value of geology in job market in the world.

Dear Asad
Geology is one of the basic science to understand the earth and its process
Geological process for formation of mineral deposits inducing fossil fuels such as coal-petroleum natural gas deposits.
Petrolueun in the world -exploiting on the basis of geological discoveries
Our life is sustain by mother earth-We have to understand earth and its process
Mining engineer depends upon geologist for location of deposits-Minerals are basis for any country?Who are doing?geologist?
All civil engineering constructions for projects/dams/tunnels etc depends upon geological conditions
in USA geology given top priority even construction of building towns cities geologist approval requires
However developing countries still not following
