Course Description


The Cardiff MSc in Applied Environmental Geology is focused on providing geoscience graduates with the advanced skills appropriate to a career with geoengineering and geoenvironmental consultancies, regulatory authorities and government agencies. The initial 7-month taught course component (Stage I) includes significant contributions from industrial collaborators. In the Stage II component (the professional project) we endeavour wherever possible to offer students a summer industrial placement to undertake their project work in all areas of the UK and overseas. At the end of 12 months our Masters graduates enjoy excellent employment prospects.
