ماذا سوف أتعلم؟

The Master in Earth Sciences is designed to enable students to handle complex problems and to develop a wide range of skills. Well founded knowledge in diverse areas of Earth Sciences makes graduates of the programme attractive candidates for government, research or private industry. The students have to chose one of the following majors: Geology, Mineralogy & Geochemistry, Geophysics and Engineering Geology.

Major in Engineering Geology

The Major in Engineering Geology provides an advanced understanding, technical knowledge, and practical skills in engineering geology and geotechnics.

Specific learning goals are:

Understand, characterise and predict the behavior of rocks and soils in civil engineering constructions such as in surface excavations, tunnels, dams, roads and bridges
Identify, characterise and cope with hazards from natural slope instabilities (e.g. landslides, rock falls, debris flows)
Investigate host rock properties and contaminant transport processes for the geological disposal of chemical and radioactive wastes
Identify, develop and protect groundwater and geothermal heat resources with targeted site investigation programmes

More specifically students gain the ability to characterise the site geology in the form of a comprehensive geological-​geotechnical model. They learn how to design and execute a site investigation project and how to interpret and synthesise diverse and often highly-​fragmented geological and technical data, and how to transfer such data into an appropriate and scientifically-​valid model as required for engineering analysis and design.
