The Society of Economic Geologists (SEG) is an international organisation with the objective to advance the part of geology related to mineral deposits, mineral resources, mineral exploration, mining and metallurgy. Membership of the society consists of over 7000 individuals from academia, industry and government bodies.

A major goal of the NUI SEG Student Chapter is to connect students across NUI Member Institutions with the professional geological community of Ireland and beyond to provide networking opportunities and support the professional development of early career geoscientist. Events organised by the chapter will include lectures, short courses and field trips.

The chapter emerged from the University College Cork SEG Student Chapter, which was established in 2015.

For its first year, the NUI SEG Student Chapter will be headquartered at the School of Earth Sciences, University College Dublin, and will be managed by David Kaeter (President), Helen Twigg (Secretary) and Aileen Doran (Treasurer).

Membership is open to students of Geology, Geography, Geophysics and other Earth Sciences from NUI Member Institutions, who are interested in the profession of Economic Geology.
