A substantial research project is a key element of the MGeol programme which gives students the opportunity to tackle a piece of original earth science that is supported by structured tutorial sessions. The project can be drawn from any area of geoscience relevant to the central theme of sedimentary basins subject to the availability of data and advisor expertise. At the end of the project you will prepare a technical report, a short public-facing account of your findings and give an illustrated oral presentation. Project work is highly valued by employers and recruiters as indicators of independence and endeavour.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||60 credits (30 ECTS credits)|
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
1st Attempt: Submission of 5,000 word technical report (70%); Oral Presentation (10%); Submission of a 'popular' science article (20%).
Supervisory meetings will take place weekly during the period of the project.
Approximately half-way through the project, an interim report showing progress to date will be submitted.
