After graduation straight to work?!
The alumni of the Division of Earth Sciences and Geography are spread all over the world. The expertise of geoscientists is in demand all over the world. In addition to exotic workplaces such as drilling rigs in the middle of the rough Atlantic, 200 meters underground in underground construction or in the rainforest of Brazil, there are also many alumni who are employed in engineering offices or authorities in Germany or in other European countries.
Students must complete a four-week internship during their Bachelor's degree. This allows students to take a first look at the geoscientist's profession.
The PAG (Praxisinitiative Aachener Geowissenschaftler) organises get-to-know-you events and lectures with geoscientific employers and helps students apply for internships.
We want to introduce you to the different workplaces in different alumni profiles:Copyright: F.Stamm
