Earth Science deals with study of the Earth and its neighbors in space. Earth sciences look-into the aspects such as Earth atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and general issues. The study field is also known as geoscience and includes multi-disciplines: atmospheric sciences, meteorology, climatology, atmospheric physics, hydrology, oceanography, geodesy, geophysics, geology, mineralogy, glaciology, volcanology, petrology, geomagnetism, sedimentology, soil science, geo-statistics, hydrogeology, astronomy and etc. Graduates can work in many areas, especially geology, environmental science, environmental consultancy firms or governmental institutions.
This MSc course explores current aspects of Earth science, investigating how the Earths lithosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere are dependent upon each other, interacting across a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. You will learn to critically evaluate current research and gain skills that allow you to update your knowledge of Earth science.
The overall aim of this course is to provide open distance learning for people working in commercial or public sector organisations who require core training and skills development in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), or for students who want to study in their own environment and in their own time.
In the present Master Program we aim at providing you with advanced training in the area of Biotechnology, with application to the Marine Resources, seeking to apply current knowledge of modern marine biology and biotechnology to the study, protection and development of marine resources.
This MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.
This MSc in Marine Environmental Protection is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and examined by continuous assessment. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying marine resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to develop policy and make decisions on marine resource exploitation and protection around the world.
The Master Course is a component of a five years programme designed by IUSS Pavia in cooperation with several Italian and Foreign Universities, under the aegis of the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), to underline the educational dimension of Universal and International Expos.
The MSc in Archaeological Science is designed to provide a broad theoretical and practical understanding of current issues and the techniques archaeologists use to investigate the human past. Its purpose is to provide a pathway for archaeologists or graduates of other scientific disciplines to either professional posts or doctoral research in archaeological science.
The future and sustainability of our societies is critically linked to the availability of raw materials and to the enhanced efficiency of all processes involved throughout their life-cycle. There is a critical need, especially in Europe, to educate engineers through an innovative curriculum bridging the gap between georesources and advanced processing technologies. Four top-level mining schools in Europe have decided to join their efforts and organize the EMerald Erasmus Mundus Master Program : ULg, UL, LTU and TUBAF. EMerald is a two-year full English Master Program educating a new generation of young professionals, integrating a perfect knowledge of available mineral resources and modern engineering technologies. www.em-georesources.eu
The Institut für Meereskunde at University Hamburg offers a master degree (M.Sc.) in Physical Oceanography. The research oriented 4 semester course is directed to students with B.Sc. degree in physical oceanography, meteorology, geophysics, physics or equivalent and provides profound knowledge on the physics of the ocean and its role in the climate system.
The MA at Durham University offers the chance to study archaeology at post-graduate level and specialise in a topic of your choice. With strands in Prehistoric and Historic archaeology, the archaeology of Egypt, Ancient India and the Near East and Landscapes of Eurasia, the MA provides the opportunity to further your research in archaeology with a view to doctoral level research or enhance your archaeological knowledge and pick up vital transferable skills ready for working in the commercial archaeology sector or in the wider employment market.
Develop the specialist skills required in this important branch of the extractive industry. For the project and dissertation, the facilities at the Camborne School of Mines can be utilised or it may be possible to undertake the work at the site of an approved industrial sponsor. Dependent on background, can be used to meet the further learning requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
