What engineering major should one choose if one would like to enter oil/gas industries in Alberta/Texas?
I need to decide my engineering major, but I would like to enter the oil or gas industry so I need to understand the best major to pursue a career in these fields.
Possible majors include: Civil, Environmental, Industrial, Mechanical, Mining/Mineral, Geological
Mining/mineral isn't possible at the top university though, only the 2,3,4 ranked engineering universities
Geological is only possible at the best university no other top 5 universities in Engineering

Power Engineering is very in demand right now. If you have any interest in the tar sands it would be your best bet for entry level.
