Earth Sciences students at the University of Birmingham complete a dissertation throughout their third (normally final) year of study.
This year we are keen to provide a larger diversity of dissertations by including more applied, industry-based projects. These could include techniques of mapping at small scales within current or former quarry workings or mapping within areas with future economic potential.
The next cohort of students will begin their projects in May/June 2017, although they will decide on where they would like to map prior to Christmas and will begin planning in the early spring.
Therefore, we would be very interested to hear about any potential projects that could be offered on this timescale.
