Environmental Earth Sciences and Geology combines tools provided by Physics, Chemistry, Biology and others to study the geologic environment and to use the accompanying principles in solving environmental problems. By studying all layers of the Earth, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere, this discipline manages to analyse the interaction of the human with the environment, to identify the issues that we are confronted with and to find means and ways to solve or minimize those issues.
Each of the aforementioned focus areas, the layers of the Earth, presents several specialization opportunities for prospective students of this discipline, with majors ranging from Atmospheric Chemistry to Biological Oceanography or Geodynamics. Providing courses like Physical Geology, Oceanography, Energy and Mineral Resources, Atmospheric Processes, Geochemistry and Sedimentology, the field of Environmental Earth Sciences and will prepare the student to become a professional in environmental processes that can work in environmental and geotechnical research or consulting.
This Second Cycle Degree Programme provides students with the high qualification and specialization needed to apply investigation methods, plan environmental recovery and reclamation interventions, evaluate environmental resources, manage and plan the territory as well as the coastal and marine systems, manage renewable energy sources, environmental-related technologies and clean products and processes.
The Graduate Certificate in Environmental Science is the first award level of an articulated program which gives qualified applicants the opportunity for study at progressive postgraduate levels in Environmental Science.
Academic training in state of the art in urban environmental research, including a cross-disciplinary outlook, and practical decision-making and problem solving skills.
Do you wish to contribute to finding solutions for issues related to planet Earth? Do you have a background in natural sciences? Then the programme Earth and Environment is an excellent choice!
The Master Programme and Mining and Geological Engineering aims at an integrated training of the future masters, providing them with the necessary skills to their professional activity in the different fields of action of a mining and geological engineer, defined and governed by the Order of Engineers.With this purpose in mind, the programme should offer sound preparation in areas such as the exploration and valorization of mineral, water, oil and gas resources and solid waste recycling (plastics, batteries and other urban and industrial waste).
Our proposed M.A. program is of high standards, dedicated to training of students in a wide variety of topics related to prehistory, environmental archaeology, subsistence, past adaptations to changing environments, and the varied exact and natural sciences involved in the research of such topics.
This Master prepares geological engineers to calculate, simulate, anticipate and master the complexity of geological phenomena with the aim of managing in an optimal manner the Earth's resources whilst preserving the natural framework we live in.
Museum Studies and Cultural Heritage Management Non-Thesis MA Program will not recruit students for 2013-2014 Academic Year.
Graduate study with concentrations in chemistry, earth science (including a fully online option), physics, and physical sciences (including teaching and non-teaching options) is offered within the Master of Science degree.
The Geographical Information Management and Applications (GIMA) Master's programme aims to educate students and professionals to become all-round managers and/or researchers of geo-information.
Earth Surface and Water is the study of physical phenomena within the Earth's environment, their spatial and temporal characteristics and relationships and the evolution towards our modern landscape.
Earth, Life and Climate is an interdisciplinary programme combining biology, (geo)chemistry and earth sciences.
