As a Petroleum Engineer, I see multimedia making a positive impact in my field by bringing everything to a more visual and personal level. Video conference calls out of the office, group workshops with blogging capabilities, or just editing and manipulating a picture of a well. Any PE in the business is working towards the same goal, drill for more oil so that prices go down and salaries go up. Multimedia will only connect us more towards our goal, so that engineers in California, can work with engineers from China, or Saudi Arabia.
Multimedia is spreading throughout the world, Petroleum Engineering could grow to be better if it were to embrace it.
