Linda Yang, Master of Science (Geology)
“The Master of Science (Geology) was well-organised and acted as a guide for students to start with basic knowledge and to progress to the highest level in petroleum geology. It contained practical industrial projects that contributed to the practice of theoretical knowledge. This project work was very valuable.”
