    Commerce/Law at UNSW, if LAT wasn't successful enough, then Commerce/Maths (which is most realistic)

    Mainly cause there is an apparent good pay that comes with it which probably happens when there is really high demand for petroleum but also because I have a general interest in studying about petroleum based off of HSC chemistry. I would've chosen Mechanical/Civil or Mechanical/Mining however I couldn't find those degrees as options on the UNSW site. I'm also pretty sure its a lot more hands on work compared to the other engineering disciplines which is something I also like

    if you're planning to do petro in australia you will have a hard time finding a decent job

    mechanical is more versitile and more opportunities for jobs

    Yeah that's half the reason why I kept mechanical cause it would save me from becoming jobless haha, but I wanted to have a job like petroleum/mining/civil cause in the future 10 years or so there may possibly be a higher demand for those resources even if petroleum engineering will probably die out in the near future eventually

    petro companies will still need other types of engineers, mechanical, electrical, chemical etc

    when some circurity breaks in one of their fancy million $ machines, they're gonna call an electrician as opposed to a petro engineer


    similary for aerospace. aero engineers probs put the least amount of work in because they just design the plane etc but then you got software engos who write the software, telecomuncation engos who communicate with towers/other planes, chemical engos who deal with the fuel, mechanical engos who deal with maintainence etc etc

    Ah that's what you meant yeah but that wouldn't really mean mechanical engineers would be able to completely carry out the same functions as a petroleum engineer say in terms of creating petroleum extracting technology or knowing how to create infrastructure like a civil engineer

    Edit: Sorry just realised you said I'd work in the same industry but I guess ill still be taking the latter degree anyways cause the more the merrier ^^
