The International Master of Applied and Exploration Geophysics at the University of Leoben is a joint study programme of Montanuniversität Leoben (Austria) and Università di Pisa (Italy). Students completing the programme earn a double Master of Science degree, from Montanuniversität Leoben and from Università di Pisa.
The scientific profile of this master's programme focuses on geophysical methods for imaging spatial and temporal distributions of physical subsurface properties. Such methods are important tools in resource exploration, civil engineering, and environmental research. Professional geophysicists often work as consultants in the field of civil engineering. Typical tasks include the evaluation, or the monitoring, of aquifers, the investigation of the subsurface stability for road or railway construction projects, or the prediction of the geology ahead for tunnel constructions. Others pursue international careers in oil and exploration companies. Both universities have close ties to the industry through guest lecturers and research projects.
