Global energy demands are increasing annually, highlighting the critical importance of energy resources for future sustainability. The Bachelor of Science (Energy Geoscience) is for students interested in the areas of science that relate to Earth's energy resources, including conventional and unconventional hydrocarbons, water, geothermal and uranium exploration for nuclear power. This program provides graduates with specific knowledge and skill sets to investigate the nature, origin, distribution, discovery and exploitation of these energy resources that are increasingly required for successful careers in this industry. A feature of the program includes extensive fieldwork and practical investigations.


The Bachelor of Science (Energy Geoscience) focuses primarily on the geological concepts of energy exploration. The program offers a unique combination of fundamental geology and energy geoscience through specialist core courses. At level 2, students will be offered an opportunity to undertake a semester of study abroad at a chosen international UA Strategic partner institution. At level 3, students undertake a Capstone Industry Research Project, mentored by industry experts, involving research with real industry samples and datasets. In addition to approved Level 1, 2 and 3 electives, students must also complete broadening electives chosen from outside of the major area of study.
