I want to become a geologist

Late in 2011, the Institute of Technology of Cambodia (ITC) created a five-year bachelor’s degree in georesources and geotechnical engineering. It involves the study of minerals, oil and other underground resources. Most people who graduate after studying in these areas work in the mining sector.

Twenty-two-year-old ITC student Ngeom Ratha said he enjoys the classes that make up the course because they have never been taught in Cambodia before.

Ratha said the field gives young Cambodians the opportunity to work with foreigners. “Working with foreigners allows me to learn and have new experiences.”

Ratha is doing his best to compete in the job market through his education, but he is wondering a key and further experience to achieve success in professional geography and geology.
