Society of Exploration Geophysicists Universidad Industrial de Santander Student Chapter (SEG UIS CHAPTER) is a active Student Chapter in Universidad Industrial de Santander (UIS), Bucaramanga, Colombia. This chapter started its activities around 2010. SEG UIS CHAPTER engage Geology Students from School of Geology in UIS, moreover there are many activities that join the Industry Professionals and Enterprises around the Bucaramanga for enrich the Geophysics in our region. SEG UIS Chapter founded your own Young Researchers Group in Geophysics:Semillero de Investigación en Geofísica Aplicada y Computacional (SIGAC)

SEG International Activities

Distinguished Instructor Short Course

In 2014 SEG UIS CHAPTER received the 2014 Distinguished Instrutor Short Course by Shawn Maxwell. Microseismic Imaging of Hydraulic Fracturing: Improved Engineering of Unconventional Shale Reservoirs DISC 2014. Students, Geologists, Geophysicists, Industry Professionals and persons related to geophysics participated in this Special Event. The topic of this Short Course was very interesting for all persons because Unconventional Shale Resources are investigated in Colombia.

Honorary Lecture

SEG UIS CHAPTER participates in the Honorary Lecture Program. In 2014 SEG UIS CHAPTER received to Mauricio Sachi with him Lecture: Practical aspects of regularization and interpolation of 5D Seismic data

Practical aspects of regularization and interpolation of 5D Seismic data



SIGAC is the Youngs Researchers Group in Geophysics at UIS. SIGAC began your activities like a small students group. Now SIGAC ties many Professionals, Geologists, Geophysicists with our undergraduate students for enrich your knowledge and skills in seismic interpretation, seismic processing, Petroleum Geology,Sedimentology, Geoelectric and many topics related to Geophysics.
