MSc Applied Environmental Geoscience

This taught MSc offers comprehensive training in the theory and practice of environmental geoscience that equips graduates for careers in scientific, engineering and environmental consultancies, natural resources and mining industries, regulatory agencies and research.

The vocational programme was established in 2017 in consultation with industry and government agencies in order to address a skills shortage identified in the environmental geoscience sector. The MSc in Applied Environmental Geoscience combines a core focus of hydrogeology/contaminated land and engineering geology with advanced modules in applied geophysics, geo-informatics, environmental monitoring and assessment, environmental law and offshore environmental geoscience. A strong emphasis is placed on obtaining 'hands-on' practical experience following international standards in best practice using real-world industry examples. Candidates with a primary degree in a Geology/Earth Science/Civil Engineering/Physical Geography/Environmental Science or a related relevant degree will be considered.

MSc Applied Environmental Geoscience graduates from non-EEA countries are entitled to remain in Ireland for up to 24 months after graduation to gain work experience under the Irish Third Level Graduate Scheme (https://www.internationalstudents.ie/info-and-advice/immigration/third-level-graduate-scheme).
