Our engagement with the community
Students studying and researching in our department have many networking and engagement opportunities with fellow students, staff, and industry. The department actively participates in careers fairs during the year where graduating students can investigate career opportunities emerging from their studies.
The department’s Macquarie University Geoscience Society (MUGS) is an academic and industry-focused student group that promotes engagement of students with industry and the community through the hosting of industry meetings, regular careers nights and sharing of professional networks.
MUGS allow a platform, through social events and social media, for students to engage with one another to help them form a friendship network within the university community. It is the aim by doing this that mentoring relationships are fostered, helping students further their networks, both academically and professionally.
MUGS currently has strong ties to major industry bodies such as:
The Department is now running a monthly photo competition in 2018 which is open to all students studying within the Department (either a degree or a single unit) and Department staff. You can find out more information by clicking here!
