M.Sc. Applied & Environmental Geoscience (AEG)
The M.Sc. program "Applied & Environmental Geoscience" is an international research-oriented two-year study program targeting at the evaluation of environmental problems and the development of ecologically and economically sound mitigation measures. Special emphasis is given on environmental problems in the subsurface such as industrial, urban and agricultural pollution of drinking water supplies from groundwater resources, the non-sustainable use of natural resources, the impact of short and long term waste disposal, use of geothermal energy, impact of climate and land-use change on soil and water quality, among others.
Finding solutions to such issues, requires a comprehensive understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms operating under natural conditions. Geoscience offers a process-orientated approach to these mechanisms based upon an in depth knowledge of the classical natural sciences combined with the utilization of modern technology.
The program is designed for students holding an undergraduate degree in natural sciences or engineering, who are interested in a process-oriented, research-driven graduate education in environmental geosciences following multidisciplinary approaches. A good background in mathematics, chemistry, and physics is required. Undergraduate training in geosciences or environmental sciences is helpful but not requested. Capabilities of independent problem solving are important and will be further developed within the educational program.
Admission prerequisites are:
- A first degree (bachelor’s degree or equivalent) in Geosciences, Geoecology, Geophysics, Mineralogy, Geography, Soil Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Sciences, Civil Engineering or a field related to environmental sciences with an overall grade better than 2,5.
- Proof of English language efficiency equivalent to a TOEFL score of 79 ibt or equivalent.
AEG being an international program offers special services, such as preparatory classes and student housing.
