“Why the World Needs Geologists:

Career Opportunities in Geoscience”


UCD Geology Workshop

Saturday 24th November 2018

10.00 a.m. – 4.00 p.m.
in UCD School of Earth Sciences



This workshop is designed to give you an insight into life as a UCD Geology student and into geological careers. It will include taster lectures, mini practicals and opportunities for problem-solving. Registration is free and lunch will also be provided free of charge.

An understanding of the geology of the Earth is critical to addressing many of society’s needs in the 21st century.  These needs include secure and sustainable access to the mineral and energy sources essential to current and future technological developments; to alleviate the threat posed by natural hazards; and, to combat the challenge to ecosystems posed by on-going climate change.

The workshop introduces you to some of these key challenges, and the investigative methodologies geology students at UCD learn to address them.  We will provide details on how you can study geology at UCD via either DN200 Science (the BSc(Hons) Geology degree), or DN700 BScSocial Sciences in collaboration with our colleagues in the Schools of Archaeology and Geography.  There are also short lectures on the content of the UCD programme and career opportunities within the geoscience sector, plus the opportunity to meet staff and students over lunch to discuss further whether Geology might be the right option for you.   We look forward to meeting you.
