Want to have an impact on the future of exploration and extraction of mineral resources? Contribute to safe and sustainable location of building, tunnels or nuclear waste? Or make your mark in informed natural hazard mitigation associated with volcanoes and landslides?
The Master Programme in Earth Science - Geology from Uppsala University will enable you to explore from nanoscale to plate tectonic scale, active systems to the Archean and from formation to deformation, and find a balance between using and preserving Earth's resources and reducing the environmental impact for a healthy sustainable future.
Our alumni work in a wide range of the industrial and research sectors. Employment opportunities are found as exploration or mine geologists, in the geotechnical industry, in geochemistry, in geothermal energy, and with natural hazards. The need for professional geologists has increased considerably during the last few years both on a local and global scale, due to the increasing demands for natural resources and infrastructure.Our graduates work at, for example, Boliden, Coast Mountain Geological group Ltd, ÅF Infrastructure AB. Job titles include exploration geologists, geologist, engineering geologist.
