Learn About Geology

Immerse yourself in the fascinating study of geology, covering rocks, minerals, structural geology, geophysics, geobiology, geochemistry, groundwater hydrology and geological surveying.

The course covers practical aspects of geology, such as mining, farming, environmental management, and construction.

As a science, geology deals with the physical structure and composition of the earth, its make-up and the processes that affect its make-up.

You will come to recognise that changes to the geology of a site has to be made with the knowledge of the potential impact of any changes which may act on them.

Geological surveys and environmental assessments are often necessary and in some cases, legally required before any site can undergo changes, whether in construction, or for any other change of purpose, if different than its current accepted use.

Understanding the earth’s historical context in relation to minerals and formation, can provide knowledge that will allow us to determine what we could expect in the future.

There are many diverse ways where the study of geology can have real influence. Here are a few samples:

  • Groundwater: – understanding and managing this valuable resource
  • Managing mining appropriately
  • Geologic natural hazards e.g. landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions – provide a better understanding of these natural phenomena
  • Seismic Activity – identifying and forecasting
  • Defining engineering works that are applicable in the construction of dams, various infastrucure and buildings to name a few.
  • Locating deposits of specific rocks and minerals
  • Understanding climate changes from the past
  • Expanding our knowledge of how the earth formed and plate tectonics (movements of the plates on the earths crust
