The modular structure of the master's programme in Applied Geoscience at University of Leoben ballows for specialisations in the following focus areas:

  • Applied Geophysics and Petroleum Geology at University of Leoben: The combined implementation of geological and geophysical techniques in the search for and exploitation of mineral oil and natural gas deposits
  • Economic and Environmental Geology: Exploration of raw material deposits, the assessment and refinement of raw materials, the evaluation of geological risks and geological environmental risks incurred by human activity and the clearance of contaminated sites
