Engineers have a good reason to work for an oil company.
After all, the next generation of oil executives is expected to be the ones in charge of producing the next oil revolution.
In a study released last month, the Association of Petroleum Exporting Countries (APEC) ranked 17 of the world’s top 20 most competitive engineering programs for the next 20 years, based on a list of requirements.
In the United States, the list of the top 10 ranked schools was based on the overall rankings of the nation’s top public colleges and universities.
It was followed by Texas A&M University-Commerce, the University of Texas at Austin, the Ohio State University and the University at Buffalo.
The top 10 in the APEC study were based on three main factors: financial aid, the ability to work with peers and the quality of the curriculum.
The schools with the highest financial aid and best faculty were Texas A & M, UT Austin, Ohio State and Ohio University.
The top five in the quality-of-education and student-faculty ratio categories were Texas, Texas A-M, Ohio and Ohio State.
Texas A Tech ranked at the top of both measures.
The highest average SAT score for engineering students was a 2,742, while the highest average GPA was 3.7.
The highest average ACT score was 3,859.
In terms of the percentage of students who are pursuing degrees in engineering, Texas Tech ranked 14th, followed by Ohio State, which had 14.5 percent.
For engineering graduates, the median earnings were $59,700.
