Exploration and Resource Geology

Cardiff is one of the few universities that run undergraduate courses specifically in Exploration and Resource Geology which has evolved from the long mining tradition in South Wales. Globally there is an ever increasing need for oil, gas, metals, and construction materials in a world where resources are finite.

The programme can include an industrial placement or an applied geological mapping project. Thus because they are trained in specialist fieldwork and the IT skills needed by a professional exploration geologist, our graduates are in great demand in the mineral exploration industry.
