School of Mining & Geosciences

Programs

Geoscientists are responsible for finding and evaluating mineral deposits, energy sources as well as exploitation and sustainable use of groundwater. The program graduates are mainly employed by oil and mining companies. You use your intimate knowledge of the earth’s surface to make educated guesses about the probable locations of natural resources.

Program curriculum
The first two years of study provide a thorough grounding in the major principles of applied geosciences, together with an overview of earth system science and necessary numerical and engineering skills. Core geoscience skills are developed in the final two years of the program. Students will undertake a substantial amount of laboratory-based practical work and will develop geological data collection and analysis skills
