Geophysical information systems

Bachelor's (5 years)
5 years

About the program

Currently, any activity of people is reduced to the issues of collecting, storing, processing digital data and making decisions based on them. One of the most difficult objects to study and computer modeling is the Earth, and one of the foundations of the world economy is underutilization. The experience of recent years has shown that classical geological and IT education do not allow specialists from the subsurface use industry to effectively exist at the junction of physical and digital reality, and therefore this specialty was opened.
During training, students have access to research laboratories equipped with modern computing equipment, equipment for prototyping electronic equipment, geophysical and geological instruments, space data access services.

Learning outcomes

  • Students will become professionals in spatial modeling of the geological environment and the surrounding reality in general.
  • Students will learn how to develop and apply modern software and hardware.
  • Students will learn how to use the arsenal of existing most modern technical means to solve the problems of prospecting and exploration of mineral deposits, environmental protection and scientific research in geosciences

Career opportunities

The educational program includes opportunities to participate in scientific research, production work, as well as field practice at the unique geological site "Chernorud" on the Small Sea. As part of subsequent field practices, there is an opportunity to gain experience in difficult conditions of geological exploration.
The graduate is a real engineer who is able not only to apply, but also to create and use the most modern solutions for the geological industry, both in the office or laboratory, and on an expedition.
