Angewandte Geowissenschaften, B.Sc.
Geosciences address almost all urgent environmental and resource problems. They ensure supply with clean water, with fossil and alternative sources of energy, with ores and salts, and with construction and other materials of all sorts. They deal with global climate change, with the pollution of the atmosphere, soil, waters, and oceans, and with cause and effect of natural disasters. Skilled experts are needed for the variety of related tasks and fields of activity. The possibilities at a technical university provide an ideal environment for study programmes oriented towards applied research.
General note: With the Bachelor of Science degree, students acquire a first degree qualifying them for a profession. However, at the Technical University of Darmstadt the Master of Science is the standard degree. It is therefore recommended that students complete a Master's programme.
