Content

Developed on the back of a recognised need for qualified Geophysicists within industry, this programme is delivered by the Department of Geology and Petroleum Geology and equips students with the skills for careers in the hydrocarbon, minerals exploration or associated service industries, or broader geophysics research.

This unique programme is designed to expose students to the theory and practice of modern Geophysics, with an emphasis on cutting edge techniques for understanding the structure, dynamics and composition of the Earth from the near surface to the deep interior. The content is broad-based and integrative with a strong focus on the quantitative aspects of geophysical data analysis and interpretation.
