Learn scientific techniques to sustainably manage the Earth’s minerals, energy sources or natural resources.
You’ll learn how remote-sensing technologies and geographic information systems (GIS) are used to analyse geological processes and monitor changes in the Earth’s environment.
Dig deeper into our mineral and energy sources by exploring topics such as mineral and rock analysis, mining geology, environmental geology or geochemistry. Develop and apply your knowledge through practical laboratory experience, fieldwork, specialised seminars, and research.
In your final year, you’ll undertake your own independent research project under the guidance of an academic supervisor and present your findings to the scientific community.
Deepen your scientific expertise by combining your specialisation with a major or minors from a wide range of science disciplines. Or broaden your skill set even further by choosing from 46 minors in other study areas, including languages, communication, design and economics.
With a qualification in advanced science, you’ll be equipped to pursue a career in the natural resource, energy or environmental sectors. Alternatively, help contribute to new scientific knowledge by progressing into a higher degree by research, such as a PhD. No matter which path you choose, you'll be expertly prepared for the jobs of the future.
