Department of Geoscience & Engineering
It is our strong conviction that our research should contribute to:
Responsible Use of the Geosphere considering the Impact on System Earth and Society.
We realize this vision by:
- inspiring our staff to be curious, creative, and work in an open and positive atmosphere that stimulates collaboration, internally within the department and also externally;
- creating fundamental, scientific and anticipative understanding of the natural processes and anthropogenic impact on system earth;
- being pioneers in creating knowledge, skills and tools through collaborative research;
- disseminating knowledge by educating the next generation engineers;
- actively engaging in societal debate (e.g., influencers, stakeholders, general public);
- ensuring healthy finances.
We define the geosphere to be that portion of system Earth that includes Earth's interior, rocks, minerals and soils, landforms and the processes that shape the Earth's surface. Responsible use includes the activities related to exploration, exploitation and mitigation of natural and man-induced geo-hazards.
