Employment Opportunities

Australia offers a wide range of excellent careers for graduate geologists. Australia is host to vast natural resources and we are increasingly facing ongoing environmental challenges resulting in jobs which require trained geologists. Graduates can expect to be employed in diverse locations not only within Australia but opportunities to work abroad are common.

Our graduates are well placed for employment given our broad degree that incorporates geology specific GIS/geospatial mapping that is core to most employers. Employers include the minerals and fossil fuels industry, research positions in scientific organisations (e.g. CSIRO), government agencies (e.g. geological surveys or Geoscience Australia), geological or environmental consultancies, the environmental sector, academia, education, museums and many others.
