Geology/Petroleum geosince


Hi , my name is Zahra , I'm about to apply for my bachelor degree but I'm confused between geosince or engineering , I have looked at few universities here is the options
1-imperial college London- petroleum geosince
2-university of Aberdeen -petroleum geosince
I'm thinking between two in one case it's top university on the other hand it's engineering and subject more involved in oil and gas

Which one would you recommend me as well as which one brings me quicker job , good opportunities , higher pay
As well as the subject I'm confused about statistics which shows that only 3% of female are employed in this sphere , will it be difficult for me to get employed and will be able to get manager positions and how whether that's possible at all can you please kindly reply me I'm lost

Dear Zahra,

Thanks for sending me your question. The universities you have shortlisted are both excellent universities but Imperial College London, is 3rd in Europe and 9th in the world whereas in Physical Sciences it stands 4th in Europe ad 12th in the world. Petroleum geoscience and petroleum engineering will bring excellent opportunities for work including travel to different parts of the world with relatively far better salary than other subjects.

Don't just look at the statistics of the employment for females you have to find out if you are successful how positively different your life shall be if you are chemist or mathematician.
