Most are snapped up by the minerals industry, others choose research careers in Universities. Our past students now occupy many key and high-level positions in the exploration and mining industries, in government geological surveys, and in University Earth science departments in Australia and overseas.

Dynamic and stimulating study environment

Postgraduate degree supervision and coursework Masters teaching is provided by academics and industry personnel who are international leaders in their fields, and our teamwork focus means you are supported by all academics (not just your allocated supervisors).

We have a very wide range of industry-funded research projects and our constant collaboration and close relationships with industry companies results in a very dynamic and stimulating learning environment, enabling students to meet and work closely with industry personnel throughout their study period. The Centre is also intricately linked with the Discipline of Earth Sciences at the University of Tasmania, which has resulted in collaborative teaching and research plus very high quality laboratory and analytical facilities.
