The Department deals with important disciplines for the study, exploration, mining and use of all natural resources including petroleum, minerals and water.


The Department graduates are currently employed in major organizations that are active in the exploration, development and production of petroleum and minerals, in finding more water resources, in big construction works, and in facing environmental problems.


The Earth Sciences Department strives to serve the key objectives of the development of the Kingdom through its programs of study and research in both the pure and applied aspects of Earth Sciences.
