The two-year Master of Science in Applied Earth Sciences is a challenging Engineering Programme for students with wide-ranging backgrounds (petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, geology, geophysics, civil engineering, natural sciences) who are interested in and concerned about sustainable use of the earth’s resources in energy production problems (oil and gas), raw materials technology and geotechnical engineering.
Geoscience and Remote Sensing: our Earth is changing due to the growing population, urbanisation, natural geophysical processes, land use, and climate change. How can we improve our understanding of the underlying processes and make the right decisions for the future? In order to answer these questions we need advanced remote sensing technology, together with innovative data science and modelling techniques. These are the foundations of the MSc track Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRS). Climate Change and Natural Hazards are cross-cutting themes within the program.
Environmental Engineering: the world is changing. Due to urbanisation most of the rapidly growing population lives in or around the city. The need for energy, water and other natural resources rapidly increases, while climate change asks for a decrease in the use of many of these resources. The big challenge for humanity is thus to create a sustainable living environment, a so-called circular economy, where energy neutrality and recycling are key elements.
