We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Department of Earth Science and Engineering straddles the interface between pure science and engineering.
Our research is focused on understanding the fundamental processes that occur on the Earth’s surface down to the planet’s deep interior, and spans three themes:
• earth and planetary science
• petroleum science and engineering
• mineral and environmental engineering
Our work contributes to an understanding of climate change at various temporal and spatial scales; we also aim to meet the challenge of reducing the environmental impact of society’s consumption of natural resources.
We’re also involved in a number of cross-disciplinary and cross-departmental research centres, such as the Grantham Institute and Energy Futures Lab.
The Department collaborates closely with the nearby Natural History Museum, and makes use of their excellent analytical facilities. In addition, we have strategic research relationships with Shell, Statoil, Sinopec, Rio Tinto and Anglo Platinum amongst others.
Our students usually find summer and permanent employment in the major oil and mining companies, as well as in software and consulting businesses; most undertake summer placements in industry to complete their research projects.
