QUT NRS is a student run society backed by the Earth, Environmental and Biological Sciences Faculty. Our members are interested in the natural sciences like Geology or Environmental Science and are looking to broaden their knowledge of the industry roles available to them and socialise with their faculty peers, teaching staff and postgraduate researchers. During the year we have a number of social events such as BBQ’s and also joint run events and competitions with other institutions. Additionally we host Industry networking events with companies from the Mining, Mineral Exploration, Oil & Gas and Environmental consulting and management sectors among others.
We are also affiliated with all the relevant professional bodies like the Australian Institute of Geoscientists (AIG) or Petroleum Exploration Society Australia (PESA) and more, which opens our members up to opportunities away from university.
