Curtin’s geophysics course provides students with both a strong theoretical knowledge of geophysical concepts and general understanding of principles, encouraging us to independently grow our own research skills. The geophysical processing laboratories are extremely challenging and useful to further understand concepts and practically apply and investigate processing techniques providing us with relevant processing skills that we can apply to industry projects. Field trips and practical surveys have taught me necessary skills on how to acquire geophysical data as well as process and interpret it.
