The Department of Earth Science and Engineering and Imperial College London maintain some of the finest facilities for advanced geoscience and computational study in the world, including:

  • extensive computing capabilities
  • the world-class College library
  • large collections of subsurface data from around the world.

We train students with industry-standard software, hardware and data. On campus, most taught modules involve teaching in a state-of-the-art MSc classroom. This major facility is the result of over £1 million of investment in classroom refurbishment, computer hardware, software, visualisation equipment, printing, scanning and networking. The facility has a network of high-spec, twin-screened PCs equipped with a full suite of industry-standard software.

 The MSc course utilises many datasets that have been donated by industry, particularly for project work; students are trained using real world data to solve real world problems.
