"Unique in Austria: Institutes of TU Graz and Uni Graz in Geosciences and Geotechnical Engineering have further deepened their cooperation within the NAWI Graz Geocenter. The center’s objectives are to make best possible use of synergies and to further develop its disciplines jointly.
As one result of this process, the master study programme was relaunched in order to integrate the high level of expertise of the NAWI Graz Geocenter. The new “Geosciences” programme thus covers a wide range of disciplines, including Geology, Palaeontology and Stratigraphy, Petrology and Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Hydrogeochemistry, Hydrogeology, and Engineering Geology. Moreover, the programme was converted to be taught in English exclusively.
Graduates will be awarded the academic degree of a “Master of Science” (“MSc”).
