Geology has been taught at the University of Aberdeen for over 150 years and there has been a separate Geology Department since 1922. Today, the Department of Geology and Petroleum Geology at the University is a recognised centre for excellence in petroleum geology research and training.
The Department has an international reputation, with many of our former graduates in prominent positions in academia, industry and government worldwide. The Department has excellent support from technical and administrative staff and our laboratory facilities include CL, EPMA, FI, SEM/EDAX, GC and GC-MS equipment and well equipped seismic and petrophysics laboratories.
Through collaboration with other Departments in the University, we have access to a range of other equipment including ICP-MS, XRD, Raman and NMR. A wide range of stable and radiogenic isotope facilities is accessible through the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre in East Kilbride.
Computing facilities are excellent and include PC and UNIX workstations that support a range of industry standard software
