Course summary

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.

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

Successful completion of this programme will open up opportunities for students with oil and gas operators and mineral exploration companies, as well as dedicated geophysics service companies. Over half of our graduates now enjoy a Geophysics Industry or Lecturing career, with a quarter undertaking Geophysics research towards a PhD and the remainder are employed in the Digital Technology sector.
