So i just finished 3 years and got my bachelordegree in engineering, petrolium technology in Norway.

Now i want to take my masters degree in USA, cause i always wanted to go there. Anyone, can recommend some schools that they know off.

Texas A&M

Thanks, any more?

In retrospect, maybe this is the right place to ask something like this

Stanford, University of Texas at Austin, or Texas A&M.   
As a Californian, I'm partially to Stanford. Stanford is near the bay and is great school. That said, I would think Texas knows a thing or two about oil. The only problem with going to Texas school is you have to live in Texas.

Stanford.
 
they actually have a masters program for petroleum engineering.

Generally, Cornell University, Duke University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, Carnegie Mellon University, California Institute of Technology.

It's fun to study abroad. I live in Sweden and studied in Canada for a bit, but as I understand it Norway is among the best in the world at offshore drilling since it's such a huge part of the economy so the best education might be back home in Norway.

I don't know specifically about oil, but Georgia Tech is one of the best engineering schools in the country. And it's a public school.

Weird thing, but today my Ap Chemistry teacher said all engineers are crazy. As for schools, I have little interest in engineering so I can't help you.

DO NOT GO TO TEXAS. That's all I will say. Stanford is a great option. It's about the only one I know of, not being an engineering buff myself, and only know that would be a good choice because of a friend with similar interests.

MIT. I'm a ChemE undergrad alum, and I enjoyed my time there. Also, ignore Mordean, Texas A&M is a fine school. So is Georgia Tech, Stanford, Caltech, University of Minnesota, University of Wisconsin. I could list more, but...I like MIT.

I guess I should also mention the school I attend. Again, I have no idea whether it dabbles into your particular branch of engineering, but you seem like somebody who is taking this seriously and wants to explore all of his options.

I go to the University of Central Florida located in Orlando, Florida. It's a great engineering school (though that's not what I'm doing here) and the location offers a lot. Many of the kids here get internships with places like Disney and Universal and actually got to build one of the roller coasters in Disney World. That's a pretty impressive thing to put on a resume and Orlando has lots of other internship opportunities available. Again, I'm not sure how it pertains to your field, but you should really look into it.
