Your Questions About Petroleum Engineering Schools In Texas
Chances of being accepted into Texas A&M: Petroleum engineering?
Hello everyone. I’m originally from Brazil and I’m currently taking classes at Lone Star College – Montgomery. I’ve applied as a transfer student for the Spring 2012. I’d like to know if I’m competitive and what my chances of getting in are. I completed my high school in Brazil and will only transfer credits from Lone star college. I’ve taken the following classes (not all transfer) : (Some don’t show grades because I’m taking or will take before transfering)

Brad Perry answers:
I disagree with the previous answer–you have definitely taken some excellent math and science courses. But the people to ask are not random strangers, but a faculty advisor at Texas A & M. Here is the page of contact information for the Pet E Dept at A & M
Contact them and ask about admissions procedures, transferring credits. They will probably tell you to go here:
which has all sorts of information about transfer students to A & M. Good luck to you!
Would it be feasible to get a masters in petroleum engineering with a bachelors in geology?
Currently I’am studying at the University of Texas at El Paso my major is geology I am in my last year of my under grad. I am going to continue with my masters. I was just going to do geology but I have been looking at the petroleum engineering departments at some grad school and it seems interesting, a big plus I have wanted to do oil all along its why I got into geology. What I am wondering is would I even be allowed to enter a petroleum engineering grad program with a bachelors in geology or would I have to take a lot (no more than 12 hours) of support classes? The schools I am considering are New Mexico Tech, Texas Tech and Oklahoma University Norman.
Brad Perry answers:
Graduate Engineering Schools normally require undergraduate degrees in Engineering. They may make exceptions for “close” undergrad degrees, but will usually impose several bridging courses. It’s hard to say whether Geology is close enough, because a Petroleum Engineering undergrad degree requires many Math courses.
A Master’s graduate in Petroleum Engineering who does not have an undergrad degree in Engineering will not be allowed to take Professional Engineer examinations in most states ( or there will be decade-long “experience” requirements).
