How do you heat a building with geothermal energy? Can groundwater be exploited sustainably? Which earth strata can be used to safely store the greenhouse gas CO2? How do you prevent subsidence? As a student of Applied Earth Sciences you can become an expert able to solve issues like these.

Applied Earth Sciences is the study about the Earth's subsurface and its atmosphere. You, therefore, will learn how the subsurface can be used to form the foundations of buildings and infrastructure or how a geothermal energy well works. You explore how the earth's resources come into existence, where they can be found and how they can be extracted wisely and efficiently, keeping the impact on the landscape and environment to a minimum. During the programme you will use advanced technologies to learn how to monitor changes in the subsurface, on the earth's surface and in the atmosphere telling you about climate change or whether an area is suitable for construction or a geothermal well.

The bachelor degree programme in Applied Earth Sciences connects engineering and geology, and involves a challenging combination of theory and practice. It's adventurous and strongly international, but above all it's a world study: this degree programme centres on the earth itself.
