Coolest Jobs on the Planet

Aggie Geoscientists have the coolest jobs on the planet. Every day, geoscientists are: tracking storms, mapping the spread of disease and crime, helping people predict and prepare for earthquakes, mapping Mars, monitoring air quality, developing strategies for global climate change, creating environmental law, and more.

Geoscientists are in high demand, and job prospects are excellent. The U.S. needs more even more geoscientists to fill projected job openings.

[Narrator]: There's a calling, a passion, a drive to make things better than they were yesterday and today, for everyone. And tomorrow, well, tomorrow will be safer, more sustainable, more resilient, more resourceful, and more secure. Because geoscientists are on all the critical fronts providing solutions to the world's most challenging issues.

Geoscientists mitigate the impact of hurricanes, map the spread of disease, clean up oil spills, protect our coastal communities, monitor air quality, protect groundwater resources, identify energy resources for doing more with less, monitor our climate, create environmental laws and influence policies, develop geographic information systems, protect our fisheries, ensure adequate food supplies, map our oceans and Mars, monitor seismic activity, restore rivers, and fuel our global economy.

These are geoscientists. These are the most critical professions for today and tomorrow.

The College of Geosciences at Texas A&M is training the leaders of tomorrow in Environmental Programs, Atmospheric Sciences, Geography, Geology, Geophysics and Oceanography.
