MSc Subsurface Characterisation & Geomodelling

Graduate Taught (level 9 nfq, credits 90)

Skills that allow us to understand, model, visualise and make predictions about what lies beneath the Earth’s surface are critical in an increasingly populous and resource-constrained world. This course provides generic training in the key geoscience principles and methods in data interpretation, analysis and computer modelling of the deeper and shallow subsurface. Graduates will acquire modern skills in applied geology applicable across a range of geoscience sectors. This sought-after and transferable ‘know-how’ will allow flexibility in your future career path in industrial, regulatory or applied research geoscience.

This programme provides graduates and company staff seeking career advancement with the key knowledge, skills and tools required to be successful geoscientists across the range of industries and applied research organisations working with subsurface data. We value ambition and passion to be expert problem-solvers through the application of sound geological reasoning, models and quantitative techniques. We provide a learning environment that develops students’ ability to solve complex subsurface problems in a creative but pragmatic manner, to present results effectively to management and clients, and to work both individually and in teams as required in a business context. A strong emphasis is placed on learning and assessment through individual and team-based practical exercises in both the classroom and field. Students work with a wide range of industry datasets and workflows, using state-of-the-art techniques and software. The curriculum facilitates direct engagement with industry personnel via tailored short courses, site visits, joint fieldwork and business-style technical presentations.
