Geology is the study of the earth. Besides the basic sciences of chemistry, physics and mathematics, geology learned the most basic elements, namely rock, which includes various types and properties of the physical and chemical, process happened, the existence and structure in the outer part is the crust. Besides, geological study processes that occur on Earth, either from within the earth such as the incidence of volcanoes, earthquakes, and the dynamics of the movement of the earth, and the processes on surfaces such as erosion, sedimentation and other changes to the rock. In the use of natural resources, geology also learn more specifically about the rocks and minerals that are important for example such as gold, silver, copper, and other materials for industrial minerals, and energy sources such as the presence of oil and gas, geothermal, coal and water resources. In the field of engineering geologists needed in relation to the building of tall buildings, dams, bridges, and groundwater management.
Geology undergraduate may work in state-owned and foreign companies in exploration (search) in the mineral resource industry; petroleum and natural gas; and geothermal energy industry. In addition to undergraduate geology can also work as a researcher at the government agency / private sector and education. Use of natural resources also provide an opportunity for a geologist become entrepreneurs for the development of minerals and precious stones category C
