The master’s level field course simulates a real world geological industry scenario to help develop your employability skills. The course aims to develop your transferable skills, including communication, decision-making and problem-solving skills, and the ability to research, evaluate and synthesise information from diverse sources. This may also include subject specific-skills like the ability to manipulate, analyse and present geospatial data using industry standard GIS and drawing software.
