| Introduction | 'Destinations Handbook' download link | Other Handbooks |

An understanding of Earth and Ocean Sciences is vital if we are to sustainably manage Earth’s energy, water, mineral, soil, coastal and biological resources. The Earth and Ocean Sciences are also the key to predicting and managing natural hazards such as floods, earthquakes, tsunami, landslides and volcanic eruptions. Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Waikato include the study of coastal and marine science, engineering geology, environmental engineering science, hydrology and water resources, natural hazards,sedimentary geology and tectonics, soil and land resources and volcanology. Graduates in Earth and Ocean Sciences go on to a diverse range of careers in environmental and resource management as well as research.

Over the last 35 years, Earth and Ocean Science graduates have been highly successful in gaining employment. The careers they are embarking on provide work that is interesting, challenging, and can lead to a range of excellent longer-term prospects. There is continuing strong demand for people with skills in Earth and Ocean Sciences, particularly in areas related to environmental management.

In this booklet we feature a small selection of our graduates whom we feel are typical of the range of careers that Earth and Ocean Sciences graduates are currently involved in. I would like to thank the graduates who are featured for sharing their stories and enthusiasm with us.

We hope you will enjoy reading about the careers of some of our Earth and Ocean Sciences graduates. If you want any further information, or if you would like someone from the Department to visit your organisation please contact us by email on or telephone us on 07 838-4024.


We invite you to have a look at the rest our web site where you can discover more detailed information on the papers offered, current research and careers.
