Qualification: Specialist of "Applied Geology"
- Oil and Gas Geology;
- Applied Geochemistry, Petrology and Mineralogy.
Short description: The Department of Applied Geology is a major provider of skilled graduates to the minerals, petroleum, groundwater and environmental industries in Russia and overseas, and undertakes high-impact fundamental and applied research across a range of disciplines.
Your future professional skills: As an Applied Geology graduate you’ll have extensive knowledge of geological surface processes, the nature of near-surface processes as they pertain to engineering and construction, and geo-chemical processes, as well as possessing a fundamental understanding of geological principles. You’ll be familiar with the geophysical principles and methods used in engineering research, and have a basic understanding of the nature of groundwater, including its flow in the subsurface and its contamination. You’ll also be equipped to generate, analyze and report on moderately complex data sets, and able to use and construct both geologic and hydro-geologic maps, and other graphic displays.
Career options: You might be employed in public sectors such as federal ministries, and local and provincial government agencies related to natural resources, geology. Private-sector jobs are found in fields such as engineering geology, energy, precious-metals exploration, and land reclamation. The degree is also broadly applied to careers in teaching, interpretive-centre work, and parks-systems management.
Internship: Students pass industrial practices (internships) and educational practices in the fields, oil and gas fields, drilling, oil and gas enterprises, companies of geological exploration, research institutes, as well as in laboratories and university departments.
