The Applied Earth Sciences MSc is an interdisciplinary program, and we accept students from a variety of disciplines. Many incoming students lack, or are weak in, some aspect of the preparation we expect in our program. For instance, incoming students from various branches of engineering or applied physics usually lack any introduction to geosciences. Others, especially those who have been in the working world for a few years, need to revitalize their math skills. Many of our students tell us that they should have prepared better for the extensive use of computer programming in our curriculum. The summary below will help you decide which subjects you should prepare ahead of time, and give advice on how to do so.
- Geology: In order to prepare your geological knowledge to the level that is required to start the TU Delft MSc track Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences, you are strongly advised to attend the following TU Delft MOOC Geoscience: the Earth and its Resources. It’s free and it will take you between 8-10 hours of study per week.
