Hello… These are all great schools! However personally speaking, I would pick Penn state & University of Texas (Houston). All the four schools are almost equal in terms of academics & research facilities required for PE. What separates PSU & Houston is their student culture, history and industry exposure. Both are crucial in terms of networking for future jobs and career advancement. Keep in touch & let me know what you end up deciding. Best of wishes

Thank u Admin! And one very imp question sir- As a Non-US graduate student,i heard from seniors that it is VERY HARD to obtain work visas in U.S oil companies after graduation.They said big oil firms rarely offer jobs to Non-USA students.Sir,is this true?

To an extent it’s true… However looking at the supply & demand graphs for PE jobs projection in future, I don’t think that will be the case. If you work hard & become an asset to a company, there is no reason why they won’t give you a visa. Best of luck
