BSc in Geology

Programme Type : Undergraduate Programme Duration : 4 years Academic Unit : School Of Mines And Geosciences


The structures of our curricula are market driven.  Currently there is a big demand of geoscientists in the mineral-mining and exploration industries in the region. As a result the undergraduate B.Sc. (Geology), traditionally offered for 3 years, was extended to 4 years in the last decade to accommodate the desired skills by the market. Additionally, three other degree programs namely B.Sc. (with Geology), B.Sc. (Geophysics) and BSc (Geology and Geothermal Resources) were introduced.
