Geotechnology

The steady growth of the human population calls for the economic and ecological utilization of all geological resources. These include water, mineral and energy resources, geothermal energy and bedrock as building ground and reservoir rock. In order to plan and implement geotechnical and environmental projects, the geological and geotechnical properties of the subsurface have to be assessed and modelled.  

The three-year bachelor’s program contains aspects of geosciences and engineering sciences. It offers students an introduction to the basic principles of natural sciences, geochemical-geophysical measuring methods, data processing and the engineering capability for the realization of projects.

The two-year, interdisciplinary master’s program is geared towards specializing in one of the chosen fields (exploration geology, applied geochemistry, applied geophysics, engineering geology, hydrogeology).

General Information on Available Courses of Study

The general access, admission and enrollment procedures as well as the organization and implementation of studies and the examinations for all degree courses at TU Berlin are regulated by the General Study and Examination Regulations of the TU Berlin (AllgStuPO). The currently valid version can be found here.

In addition, there are course-specific study and examination regulations (StuPO) for each degree program, which specify the regulations of the AllgStuPO and, for example, contain regulations on the structure of the program and the thesis.

There are supplementary access and admission regulations (ZZO) for master's degree programs that contain regulations on the requirements for the admission and the selection process in the respective degree program. An overview of the language skills to be proven can be found on the website of the Office of Student Affairs.
