At all times, information that allows you to get economic benefits and meet the needs of society has been of great importance. Today, solid minerals, such as gold, diamonds, platinum, and coal, are essential to humanity for the development of civilization. Information about the presence of such fossils in the bowels of our planet is very much appreciated. There are a huge number of ways to obtain such data, but to obtain reliable geological information, in most cases, it is necessary to drill exploration wells.
Graduates of this field receive all the necessary knowledge and skills for scientific research in the field of exploration drilling for solid minerals and water, a diploma with the qualification " Researcher. Teacher-researcher", and after defending their PhD thesis, they are awarded the academic degree-Candidate of Technical Sciences. Today, there is a shortage of highly qualified specialists and scientists in the field of "Technology and technology of geological exploration" (included in the training area 21.06.01 – Geology, exploration and development of minerals).
