Organisation profile

Geology has been taught at Aberdeen for more than 150 years, with degrees awarded since 1892. Today we are a forward-looking and vibrant department at the centre of the European Oil Capital. We undertake cutting-edge research across a range of topics, frequently in association with industry partners. Our research has a special focus on the evolution of sedimentary basins which host many of the world's significant resources, over a broad spectrum of scales and geoscientific disciplines. The strength of our faculty and our strategic linkage to industry allows us to offer a variety of highly relevant and accredited undergraduate and post graduate programmes (both taught and research orientated), together with professional development courses for industry personnel.
