Situated in the heart of South Kensington’s museum district, the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London employs ~45 academic staff members and ~85 postdoctoral research scientists supported by a team of 26 professional and technical staff. Our academics and researchers are at the cutting edge of discovering how Earth and planetary systems work and how natural resources and energy can be sustainably extracted and utilized, using a combination of pure and applied research. We are a multidisciplinary and diverse community that promotes inclusive and collaborative work. We have strong ties with colleagues across Imperial College London and have a track record of working closely with our neighbours at the Natural History Museum who offer complementary expertise, access to unique sample collections, impressive analytical facilities and outreach opportunities. We collaborate with colleagues both nationally and internationally.

Our research is wide-ranging and is performed across three sections: Earth & Planets, Petroleum Geoscience and Engineering and Computational Geoscience and Engineering. Our teaching involves Undergraduate-level courses in Geology, Geophysics and Petroleum Geoscience and Masters-level courses in Petroleum Geoscience, Petroleum Engineering and Metals and Energy Finance. We continue to develop our teaching portfolio and have recently added a new MSc course in Applied Computational Science and Engineering and a new undergraduate degree scheme in Earth & Planetary Science.
