Message from The Dean

I welcome you to the School of Geosciences (SoG) at the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR).
The School Geosciences is made up of a dynamic group of disciplines made up of atmospheric and climate science, geography and sustainability, geology, and geospatial sciences. We tackle key issues facing society emanating from mother earth and the four interdependent parts called “spheres”. The spheres are the lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. These spheres are so closely connected that a change in one sphere often results in one or more of the other spheres. Our teaching and research about these connected spheres include climate change, resource management and sustainability.
At UENR, the School of Geosciences has multiple interdisciplinary programs geared towards solving modern-day socio-environmental issues, including, the curriculum provides students with a strong foundation in the fundamental principles of geoscience, while also exposing them to cutting-edge research and technology in the field.

The biggest hole ever dug by man can be found at Kimberley, South Africa,
and it was dug using hand tools only. 
Over a period of about 40 years, 25,000,000 (25 million)
tons of material was removed,
to net around 3 tons of diamonds

What our Students think

Dramani Yinsongte Kizito

“My desire to develop software made me take this program to acquire the necessary skills which I would use to solve societal problems and better the lives of others.

Silas Owu

“Computer Science/ IT promotes individuality and uniqueness because it applies one's ideology in enhancing livelihood and enabling our society or the world to achieve extraordinary and sustainable goals, through practical(hard ) skills and soft skills”.

James Nkum Otabie

“Hackers are breaking the systems for profit. Before, it was about intellectual curiosity and pursuit of knowledge and thrill, and now hacking is a big business” Kevin Mitnick . The drive to solve real-life human problems by logical reasoning and analyzing problems through algorithms, programming languages, Artificial Intelligence, and networking as well as the easy job market for a computer science graduate got me into the study of Computer Science, hence I believe my aspiration of becoming a Cyber Security Specialist can be achieved in this field of study”.

Bour Edna Mintaa

“I believe with the majority we can change the world to make it a better place through nature that is why I chose Natural Resources Management as a program of study”
