Welcome to Earth Science and Engineering
Welcome to the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London - one of the world's leading centres for the study of Earth science (geoscience).
Through science and engineering, we help to solve the principal challenge facing the world in the 21st century: how to access in a sustainable way and with minimal impact on the environment the natural resources (water, food, energy) we all need for a good quality of life.
From Spain to Italy and beyond -our undergraduates spend more time in the field than at any other UK university.
