Master's Programme in Geoengineering

As one of the highest ranking programmes in its field, the Master’s Programme in Geoengineering provides world-class education in the disciplines of geoscience, material science, mechanics and construction. As geoengineering is a discipline involved with soil and rock, working as the primary basis for our built environment, one could call it the hidden science of everyday life. Simultaneously, geoengineers play a key role in urbanisation and circular economy, fighting climate change and the growing use of natural resources. Thanks to their highly appreciated knowledge and skills, as well as the programme’s close collaboration with the industry, graduates tend to find great job opportunities with ease.
