The M.Sc. Applied geosciences primarily deepens the applied aspects of geosciences, with a geoscientific focus on environmental research. Building on a suitable bachelor's degree, knowledge, skills and competencies are imparted in the master’s degree, in particular in the areas of hydrogeology, environmental geochemistry, engineering geology, geothermal energy, applied mineralogy and atmospheric aerosol, in order to enable graduates to deal with the future topics of water, To be able to work independently and responsibly on issues related to energy and the environment. At the beginning of the master’s program, students choose one of two specializations (“Applied Geology” or “Environmental Geochemistry”)
The job offer for geoscientists is shaped by the increasing need for experts in climate, water, energy, raw materials, soil and the environment as future issues for society as a whole. The knowledge of chemistry, physics, computer science, etc. imparted in the course of studies means that geoscientists can be employed in a variety of ways. For example, it is possible to work as a hydrogeologist and engineering geologist in a consulting or engineering office or in authorities (e.g.Federal Institute for Geosciences and Raw Materials ) as well as at environmental, water and civil engineering offices as well as atgeological state offices . Further fields of work for geoscientists are the supply of raw materials and energy as well as environmental protection.
