Geology has an important applied meaning – the discovery of mineral resources.
While studying at the Faculty of Geology you will master the modern methods of investigating the structure and features of the material composition of the Earth; use computer technology to analyze geological information and create designs in the field of geographic information systems as well as use technologies for collecting, processing, storing and interpreting geological and geophysical data obtained during relevant studies of geological structures.
At our faculty you will have the chance to perform in interesting educational field practices. These include the first practice in the Carpathians and Podilia, the second practice in the field laboratory of geological and ecological research in village Verkhnie Synovydne, and the third practice at unique geological sites of Ukraine, taking into account the student’s specialization.
