Outlook for insight – the Master’s degree programme in technical geology can be described this simply.
These are just a few of the questions that you as a student in technical geology will be able to evaluate.
With a Master’s degree in technical geology, you have the following competences:
You will obtain a broad knowledge that qualifies you for jobs within the sectors of environment, energy and planning. This means that you can get a job within consultative engineering companies as well as within the public administration. There are also opportunities of employment within the construction industry regarding the solution of geotechnical jobs. In many of these jobs, your role is to bridge the gap between theory and practice. As an example the geologists have carried out a wide number of geological and geotechnical investigations in connection with the building of “Storebæltsbroen” (the bridge connecting Seeland and Funen), the bridge across Oresund, the mini-metro in Copenhagen and the construction of motorways.
You also have the opportunity of continuing your studies with a PhD programme, or you can use your education in technical geology as a stepping stone for at job abroad at international companies or research institutions. The career possibilities are thus manifold both nationally and internationally.
