Structure of Study at RWTH Aachen University


In the first year of study, the focus is on understanding processes and fundamentals in the field of geo- and engineering sciences. In addition, a research module is integrated, which should enable the development of models and the critical evaluation, the assessment of strengths and weaknesses as well as the estimation of uncertainties of these models. Thereby, contents learned shall be linked while space for innovative approaches will also be offered. Integrated into a current research project (from academia and/or industry), the processing and evaluation of data related to natural hazards and the sensitive and valuable public relations work related to this topic will be trained.

In the second year of study, the acquired basics will be deepened. An internship in industry or research is an integral part of the curriculum and the possibility of a mobility module is given.

The course of study concludes with a Master's thesis.
