Overview

Special emphasis is given to environmental problems in the subsurface such as the pollution of drinking water supplies from groundwater resources, the non-sustainable use of natural resources, the impact of short and long term waste disposal, the impact of climate and land-use change on soil and water quality.

The Applied and Environmental Geoscience programme at the University of Tübingen aims for a comprehensive understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological process mechanisms in the geo- and hydrosphere. Students from various science backgrounds learn to qualitatively and quantitatively address complex processes in soils, water and air and to evaluate environmental risks based on multi-disciplinary approaches.

Career prospects

As AEG students have various academic backgrounds - some are trained in geosciences, others in environmental sciences, chemistry, biology, physics or engineering - they choose different specializations and elective modules according to their respective background and interests. Therefore AEG alumni are also working in a variety of fields.

The key employers for graduates of the AEG program are environmental consultancies working in:

  • characterization of sites (hydrogeology, geophysics, chemical and micorbiological analysis)
  • assessment of environmental risks
  • management of water resources
  • design and operation of remediation technologies
  • modeling of flow and reactive transport in subsurface systems

AEG graduates are also well trained for jobs in environmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, and (re-)insurance companies covering costs of environmental risks and remediation. Furthermore AEG lays an excellent foundation for doctoral studies in programs of earth sciences, environmental sciences, and environmental engineering.
