"I found the degree programme to be excellent and extremely flexible so that I could tailor my degree to both my interests and career aspirations. The three years were great although I still can’t see limestone and think of anything but the three weeks in the rain in a Derbyshire dale being terrorised by sheep as part of my dissertation! Since leaving I've mainly been employed in the oil industry but on occasion I've dabbled with geotechnics (including supervising landfill creation). My work in the oil industry has concentrated on various hydrocarbon provinces around the world but mainly the North Sea and North West Shelf of Australia. The latter work finds me visiting Perth often but I've also spent time in Houston. I've moved away from Geology a little now and concentrate more on Geophysics."
