Department of Geophysics
Geophysics integrates physics, mathematics, geology, computer science, signal processing, and much, much more to unravel science related to Earth, energy, and the environment. To prepare students to be leaders in geophysics, we offer a B.S. degree in geophysical engineering and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in geophysics and geophysical engineering. Our graduates are hired by (1) groundwater, environmental, and subsurface construction firms, (2) petroleum, mining, and renewable energy companies, (3) government agencies, and (4) academic institutions. We invite you to come join us in the excitement of exploring our planet and beyond! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
