Bachelor of Science in Geosciences
The Geology Department offers a B.Sc. degree program in Geosciences. The program provides education in fundamental principles and applications of geosciences through theoretical, laboratory and field experience. Students gain a broad and versatile knowledge in the geosciences, providing them with qualifications and skills suitable for employment in governmental and private sectors concerned with terrain and environmental evaluation, energy and mineral resource, groundwater exploration, engineering geology, and research careers through higher degree studies. Students are engaged in research projects in their final year and participate in a range of Departmental research activities. Students are offered introductory work experience in private companies and public utilities and agencies through an internship program.
- Serve the national interest by graduating students capable of working in the diverse domains of geosciences
