We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Industrial Geology offer advanced study of geological and geotechnical processes relevant to industries such as construction and mining.
Related subjects include Mining Geology, and Applied Environmental Geology. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Geology or Structural Engineering.
Geological processes are a part of our everyday lives. We rely on them for our energy supply, our water, our homes and our transport links. Training is therefore broad, but may include topics such as: the development of tunnels for transport; the construction of dams, mines and quarries for domestic resources; renewable energy systems such as wind farms.
Approaches in Economic Geology are often interdisciplinary, combining methodologies from Civil Engineering, Geology and Soil Science. For example, you may employ techniques in surface and subsurface geology to identify adverse ground conditions. Or, you might utilise methods in toxicology to examine contaminated land or water sources.
Careers include roles in the civil sector, such as urban planning or offshore engineering. Other careers may include roles in insurance and utilities companies, environmental regulation agencies, and government.
