All students of the bachelor programmes “applied geoscience” and “Management of georesources” are obligated to absolve a minimal 4 weeks work placement until the end of its bachelor studies.
The work placement shall give insights and orientation into working possibilities of geo-jobs in the last third of the bachelor programme. For that reason, it is not allowed to affirm work placements, which were done before the study start.
A report must be handed in not later than 3 months after the end of the work placement to achieve the 5 credit points.

The Praxisinitiative Aachener Geowissenschaftler (PAG) offers a data base of work placements with contacts of potential working possibilities and consultation in every way. In Drittsemestermentorium (3.semester tutorial) there is an event to inform about planning and application processes for the work placement.
