Professional perspective


Graduates of the Applied Geophysics Master’s are characterized by subject-specific knowledge in exploration geophysics fields and experience in working in an international environment, but also by an analytical way of thinking and the ability to solve complex issues. Therefore, besides having a proficiency in geophysical methods, which are relevant in petroleum industry and environmental topics, they also acquired strong computational skills and show a great performance in dealing with pertinent software. In the following, some professional fields are listed:

  • exploration geophysics
  • environmental geophysics
  • hydrogeophysics
  • geophysical prospection
  • remote sensing
  • seismology
  • construction ground investigation (civil engineering applications)
  • raw material exploration (e.g. metal, minerals, rare earths)
  • borehole geophysics
  • archaeology
