Geophysicists study the interior of the Earth. They explore for natural resources such as oil, minerals and groundwater, and help solve environmental engineering problems, from natural hazards to pollution monitoring.
In this degree you will obtain understanding and practical training in a wide range or geophysical exploration methods, including data acquisition, processing and interpretation. During your studies you will have hands-on experience using industry standard equipment and software, while also developing background knowledge in geology, mathematics and physics. You will explore geophysical methods such as seismology, magnets, gravity, electrical and electomagnetic methods. You will also get a thorough grounding in all non-invasive geophysical techniques used in exploration.
