Advanced Geoscience III - GEOS388

This unit is offered on a pass/fail basis.

This unit caters for students who are strong in geoscience and who are interested in pursuing a scientific career in geoscience. It aims to encourage outstanding students to reach their full potential by helping them prepare for professional contexts through a research-based internship. This activity will be conducted either in collaboration with a research facility at MQ or an external partner organisation. Students will produce a scientific report, reflect on their overall learning in the program as well as experience through this unit, and give a presentation on their findings. Students will also be encouraged to mentor first year advanced geoscience students, and engage in activities within the broader department as part of their learning through participation in this unit.
