The Earth Science Master's and PhD’s Programme provide depth and diverse potential for subject specialisation. The research programmes also give you comprehensive experience with variety of analytical methods including the ability to evaluate and present complex issues within the Earth Sciences. The Faculty of Earth Science offers three different fields which vary from Geoscience, Natural Resources Management, Sustainable Science.
Natural Resources could create wealth but must be exploited sustainably. Therefore, this field will give special attention to the use of science and technology in natural resources management towards maintaining a balance environment that will contribute to the development and formation of a technology-wise society.
Sustainable Science will emphasize on utilization of integrated science and technology in environmental management towards maintaining a balance environment. This will contribute to the sustainable development and management for human quality of life.
Geoscience is the study of land issues and related movements of the earth's surface, geohazards (landslides, floods, and earthquakes), exploration of natural resources (such as water, minerals, petroleum and natural gas), the management of geological information with the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and geological mapping.
