The degree programme Earth Sciences is a select degree programme, which creates a unique internal community of students. Many laboratory courses and microscopy exercises, as well as a wide range of excursions provide plenty of variety during studies and constant practical relevance. There is also the opportunity to work with external companies on research projects even during your degree programme, enabling you to gain additional experience.
I recommend this degree programme to anyone interested in our earth, its structure and components, and the processes taking place on it and in it. You should also possess a certain love for nature, since work is often performed outdoors during the degree programme.
Geoscientists work at a national and international level in university and non‑university research institutions, in industry, in the public sector, as well as in geotechnically oriented engineering firms and in museums.
They work on geologically or environmentally relevant problems in the following areas:
To qualify for a career as a geoscientist, you will need to complete the master’s degree programme in Earth Sciences after graduating from your bachelor’s degree programme.
