This is a specialised master degree course in Economic Geology specifically designed for industry and government geologists who wish to study for a degree whilst continuing their employment. It is the nucleus of the postgraduate teaching program at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Ore Deposits (CODES)
and forms part of the National Minerals Geoscience Masters Program. The course is usually only offered on a part-time, external basis. Only students that can provide evidence of financial and logistical support, and provide a research proposal will be considered for full-time admission. Students that
are considering taking the course on a full-time basis must contact the program co-ordinator Robert Scott to discuss their plans.
The Master of Applied Science is a four semester full-time or eight semester part-time course offered on the Hobart and Launceston campuses by most Schools of the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. While the course for full-time students is the equivalent of four semesters, students with an acceptable background may be able to complete the course in three semesters over one calendar year.
We offer a series of short courses as part of our Master of Economic Geology and Master of Science (Exploration Geoscience) degrees to help industry geologists to keep up with advances in mineral exploration technology and ore deposit research.
Each course features an extended format comprising an intensive program of lectures, seminars and practicals, some involving fieldwork in Tasmania or overseas. The course leaders are specialists selected from industry and universities, and are eminent in their fields. Each course is available to industry participants as a complete two-week course, or segments of particular interest can be taken in individual blocks.
