Are you from Ipoh? if yes then UTP is the best university in town. If you are from KL like me, don't ever think of going to UTP as you stated that you are a homesick guy, try UM lol if you can, cause i believe UM has the best chemical engineering school in the country. I'm a chemical engineer grad from UTP and working as a drilling engineer a.k.a petroleum engineer, so what I can say is these sort of things depends on your company whether they want to send you to offshore or not, else wise you should be happy in KL. Chemical engineering gives you a broader scope of not only working in the oil and gas but also foodtech, chemical industries and also some other related to chemicals. Petroleum as you can see only oil and gas. Correct me if i'm wrong, just take chemical engineering, you can have the luxury of entering any working field if you want. You can even be a chemist since chemical engineering also gives you some basic knowledges of chemical analysis and organic chemistry.

Why would you want to enter oil and gas in the first place? Is it because of the money or salary, or out of pure interest. As a chemical engineer, you would have to be prepared for the tough working conditions if you want to work offshore. And what inspired you to become a chemical engineer?

Then my advice is go and find your passion....discover it. Don't just enter OIl and GAs because you think it will fetch you a high salary. You will be dissapointed.
