The society offers an insight into this fascinating subject in a relaxed setting. All undergrads, postgrads and lecturers are welcome.
The best and most hotly anticipated events organised by the society – we head off to places of great natural beauty all over the UK to sample the best geology our country has to offer. Recent destinations include Norfolk, South Wales and North Yorkshire. A day in the field is followed a lovingly cooked dinner by the committee, a fancy dress dinner, and a chance get to know your fellow rock-enthusiasts.
We organise evening/lunchtime talks throughout the year. Lecturers, PhD students and field experts from outside and within the department give fascinating lectures about up-and-coming topics in geology or about their own current research. Drinks, nibbles and mingling follows.
A long-standing tradition where six top geologists from across the country are invited to take part in a full day of presentations on a chosen topic. This event is very popular, not just because of the quality our speakers, but because we provide free lunch and an evening drinks reception, all topped off with a celebratory dinner at a local restaurant. Symposium 2020 was called “Geology for the Future” – a series of short lectures by geologists leading the way in sustainability research - but the event tends to alternate between Sustainability and Planetary themed so make sure you come to both over your time at Imperial so you don't miss out!
Only available to members of Imperial College Union.
