Geoengineering, Master of Science (Technology)

The Master’s Programme in Geoengineering equips engineers of the future with the skills for working on projects that involve soils, rocks and other earth materials.

Geoengineering relies on a wide range of disciplines, including geoscience and material science, mechanics and construction. Structures of interest include foundations, roads, excavations and underground structures like tunnels. The field also covers resource extraction, as most construction materials, everyday household items, energy sources and groundwater originate in the earth. Megatrends like urbanisation, climate change and the increasing use of natural resources and energy greatly affect our lives. For geoengineers, they create both challenges and opportunities.

The Master’s Programme in Geoengineering gives you the knowledge, skills, and competences that are needed to understand the behaviour of soils for geotechnical engineering, of rocks for rock engineering and mining and of road structures for highway engineering. As a graduate of our programme, you will have a firm grasp of the entire life cycle of engineered structures. This covers the entire life cycle from research and design to construction, maintenance and recycling. Field investigations, laboratory experiments and numerical modelling are the tools a geoengineer relies on.

Career prospects

Geoengineers have many opportunities to work in varying expert assignments. Graduates are mainly employed by industry, but also by government organisations and research institutions. They hold key positions ranging from research, teaching and consultancy to management, design and engineering. Typical job titles at the start of a career in geoengineering include project manager, designer and site supervisor. An academic position is also a possibility after completing a doctoral degree.
