  • Why study science?
  • Graduate profiles

UWA’s new Centre for Petroleum Geoscience develops highly skilled graduates to meet Australia’s geology and geophysics needs.

This skill development is particularly important in an increasingly competitive international petroleum industry and amid growing CO2 sequestration activity.

Students need and want to be exposed to real energy challenges that exist, both in Australia and throughout the world.

One of the Centre’s key missions is be an excellent forum for students, staff and energy professionals to get together and share real project information and experiences. We are actively recruiting top-notch students for our program.

Undergraduate courses

We offer a large variety of undergraduate choices under the Bachelor of Science degree.

Three-year degrees

  • You can choose from an exciting selection of majors.
  • After the three-year BSc you might consider a research intensive Honours year.


  • Honours study is available for those who have completed a Bachelor of Science degree and obtained at least 65% in their science major.
  • Graduating with honours is a necessary to go onto postgraduate research.

Postgraduate courses

Our postgraduate MSc and PhD degree programs reflect the fact that geoscience is a modern, high-tech discipline.

We play a key role in strengthening postgraduate course offerings to ensure that our high-quality Australian and international geoscience graduates are well prepared for professional career paths in industry and government, or for careers in research and education.
