Geophysical exploration is an applied branch of geophysics that uses surface and borehole methods to measure the physical properties of the subsurface Earth to detect or infer the presence and position of ore minerals, groundwater reservoirs and other geological structures. This field is the practical application of physical (methods such as gravitational, magnetic, electrical, and electromagnetic methods) to detect measurable physical differences of rocks that contain minerals or other anomalous targets.
Geophysical exploration engineering offers several specializations in the Energy & Resources fields. Our graduates will be in charge of technical applications of geophysics in a wide variety of related industries. Career paths include : Energy & Resources field services company, Government-Operated Enterprises, Government-Funded Institutes and/or Laboratories, Resources Development Foundations.
