Every picture tells a story...


An academic career in Geology or Geological Engineering means a lot of hard work, but that doesn't mean that you can't have a lot of fun, too. Our students get to learn the tools of the trade by doing; when studying geology, that means getting out in the field. In our department, getting your hands dirty is a good thing.
