University rank #79 (WUR) ,
This program is a joint degree program, in which three universities are involved: RWTH Aachen University, TU Delft, and ETH Zürich.


The strengths and complementary specializations of the three universities are combined in the two year program. During the periods in Delft, Zürich, and Aachen, students can specialize in the areas of hydrocarbon exploration and management (crude oil, natural gas, and carbon) or environmental and engineering geophysics (including the exploration and management of geothermic energy resources). As a result, graduates of the program are prepared as much as possible for the demands of the international job market.
