    You could use that degree as a start to then earn a Petroleum Engineering degree from the University of Houston, A&M, University of Texas or Texas Tech. They all offer both BS and MS degrees in Petroleum Engineering. The University of Houston just started their PE program in 2009 whereas the other 3 Texas schools have well established PE programs.

    If your grades are good you should have no problem transferring to a 4-year program. You might lose some credit hours due to the differences in curriculum between Petroleum Tech and Petroleum Engineering. However, I have seen some of the Petroleum Tech programs which provided about 80% of similar classes as Petroleum Engineering during the first 2 years.

    The easiest way to find out is to contact the University of Houston and discuss this with them as to what will transfer and what will not.
