Add geoscience to your resume

Petroleum geology and geophysics is about understanding our earth and the processes that shape it. Geoscientists are explorers, problem solvers and innovators. They recover resources and meet energy demands in economical, safe and sustainable ways.

The Australian School of Petroleum is a world-class centre for petroleum education, training and research. We have strong links to industry with fully integrated teaching and research programs.

What will you do?

Our graduate certificate builds core skills and knowledge for careers in geoscience. You will:

  • access industry-standard techniques, software and datasets
  • learn from internationally experienced staff
  • study exploration and development geoscience in depth
  • build hands-on skills and practical knowledge.

Where could it take you?

You might pursue careers in mineral or petroleum exploration with multinational and local companies. You could be a geologist, a geophysicist or an oil and gas analyst. Perhaps you’ll work in consulting or as a natural resource manager in a government agency.
