Petroleum Engineers

In high school, you can prepare for college engineering programs by taking courses in mathematics (ideally calculus), physics, chemistry, geology, and computer science, preferably honors or advanced placement classes. Economics, history, and English are also highly recommended because these subjects will improve your communication and management skills. Mechanical drawing and foreign languages are also helpful.
