The Master of Science in Applied Earth Sciences is a challenging Engineering Programme for student with backgrounds in: petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, geology, geophysics, civil engineering or natural sciences.
The master's degree in Applied Earth Sciences is a continuation and extension of a bachelor's degree. The training builds a bridge between geology, technique and social and economic issues. You focus on a broad international area of expertise, ranging from the detection and extraction of raw materials to all sorts of processing and production processes associated therewith. Sustainable use of the subsoil is the key element. The emphasis is placed on the application of the earth sciences.
You will be trained as a creative and independent thinker; an engineer with the ability and skills to tackle complex problems. In the first year you will take specialised modules, do lab work and go on a geological excursion. In the second year you will write a thesis under the supervision of a professor. Your last exam will be a defence of your thesis.
The courses and assignments are compiled by specialists who excel in their own disciplines. Many of them have close ties with industry. The study environment is international, with English as the working language. In addition to following the training and teaching programme, students may test practical cases against the scientific knowledge developed by our professors and researchers.
As a small community, AES is flexible with plenty of scope for staff and student interaction. As the programmes are broad-based with a strong international character, graduates can find employment in many industrial and academic domains.
