Bachelor of Science (taught in German)
Applied Geosciences

Geoscience is Natural Science!

Therefore, our Bachelor's programme teaches basic knowledge in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Our geoscientific courses are built on this fundamental knowledge, providing sound theoretical and methodological expertise in applied geosciences. Field and laboratory methods are specifically taught in exercises and practical courses in order to gain skills in the application and evaluation of methods. They are intended to provide access to a wide range of geoscientific activities in our students' future careers. After six semesters, the programme concludes with a three-month bachelor thesis leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.).

Structure of the Study Programme

The study programme is structured as follows:

  • Compulsory courses in which the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and chemistry are taught (lectures, exercises, practical courses).
  • Compulsory geoscientific courses covering the fundamentals of geology, mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry (lectures, exercises).
  • Applied geoscience subjects and topics such as hydrogeology, engineering geology, geothermal energy, and atmospheric science are already taught during the bachelor's programme.
  • Field and laboratory internships as well as excursions based on geoscientific fundamentals and applied hands-on topics.
  • Geoscientific electives with additional course options such as soil science, geophysics and others.
  • There is also an interdisciplinary elective course (e.g. computer science, ecology, economics, geotechnics…).
  • In the final bachelor thesis, you will work on a small research project.
