Add experience with industry-leading subsurface software to your CV

Apply today

Join an international network of students, educators, and researchers using Seequent software to advance our understanding of the subsurface.

We believe a better understanding of the Earth creates a better world for all. That’s why we support those at the forefront of knowledge with software at little to no cost.

How can Seequent software help my research?

Subsurface software also helps you gain more from your data, in less time. Visualising and communicating data to various audiences is key to getting your research out into the world.

Digital skills are a must today with future employers and academic supervisors. Get ahead of your peers by adding experience with industry-leading software to your CV.

We’ll get you up to speed quickly. You’ll be supported with on-demand training videos, webinars, and support articles to help you succeed with our software.

Academic licenses are available for both:

Research Projects

Licenses for those conducting detailed and extended subsurface research through a qualifying education institution, ideal for PhD students.

Classroom teaching and learning

For those teaching or learning geoscience in qualifying educational institutions.

Which software is right for me?

Seequent’s integrated geoscience software is widely used across the mining, civil, environmental, and energy industries. Whether you’re teaching or studying geology, geophysics, geotechnical, geothermal, or geostatistics – discover the software that’s right for your research here:
