Impressions from our Bachelor/Master degree

Field work is a very important part in most areas of Earth Sciences, from research to engineering companies. We offer an excellent and profound field work training in our bachelor and master degree. This also includes e.g. a cartographic compilation of various on-site findings. Destinations of field trips in the last years were e.g. Greek, Sweden, England, Scotland, India and many geological settings in Germany.
