The seasonal geological training for the first-year students was held in Crimea

From 8 to 29 June 2023, the first-year students of the Faculty of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics of Gubkin University underwent practical training in general geology at Zhemchuzhina Training and Health Center in Alushta.

Educational geological routes took place in the mountainous and foothill parts of Crimea, as well as in mine workings, quarries and the coastal zone of the Black Sea. Educational geological routes are the most interesting and important part of the training that open an opportunity to see geological objects and processes, to feel their scale and history of development. In total, eight educational geological routes were made by Gubkin University students. During the training, students climbed the mountains and went down into cold caves taking their main attributes: a geological hammer, a field diary, geological maps, a pencil, a mountain geological compass and modern navigational instruments. At leisure, students compete in sports such as volleyball, football, basketball, badminton, chess and checkers.

Educational geological training was organized and conducted by the faculty members of the Department of General and Petroleum Field Geology.
