Applied Earth Sciences

The two year Master of Science Programme Applied Earth Sciences is a challenging Engineering Programme for students from a wide variety of different disciplines (including petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, geology, geophysics, civil engineering, natural sciences) who are interested in and concerned about sustainable use of the earth in relation to problems of energy production (exploring and exploiting oil and gas), raw materials technology or geotechnical engineering.

You will be trained to become a creative and independent thinker; an engineer who is able to solve complex problems. In the first year specialized courses are taught, lab work is an important part and you will be taken on a geological excursion. In the second year you will conduct a research project under the supervision of a professor. Defending your thesis will be the last exam.

The courses and assignments will be given by specialists who excel in their respective disciplines and often operate in industry. The environment is international, English is the standard-language. In addition to the training and teaching-programme there is the possibility of combining cases from personal practice with the specific scientific knowledge developed by our professors and researchers.

The AES community is a small one, which has the advantage of flexibility and means that participants can get to know each other. The broad and internationally oriented nature of the course means that graduates can find employment in a wide range of industries and businesses, in the disciplines covered by AES and others.
