Math, Science, and Computer Students: The Energy Sector Wants You
Education varies for future energy jobs, from needing a high school diploma to an advanced degree

While much of the energy sector's hiring over the next decade will involve skilled and unskilled labor to operate drill rigs and tractor trailers, college grads with technical and advanced degrees will be needed to fill lucrative positions as engineers, scientists, and technicians.
