- Excellent academic record in BTech in Petroleum Engineering is a must

There are certain positives and negatives of this profession Where as a golden future in exploitation of liquid gold attracts every young engineer,risks involved in it can deter many not to opt for such a career.In order to search new oil fields,at times petroleum engineers are required to stay in remote and distant areas which is very difficult.

The positive side, it is highly rewarding career and also provides opportunities to travel to distant places.
