Living in Different Cities

The Joint Master’s Programme in Applied Geophysics offers students the opportunity to live and learn in three vibrant European cities. Living in different countries broadens the students‘ perspective through experiencing different cultures. Its enhanced student mobility therefore improves the students’ chances of pursuing careers in competitive global industries.

TU Delft

Delft, The Netherlands

TU Delft‘s principal strength is in geophysical methods for subsurface characterization and monitoring of subsurface processes. The city of Delft offers a wonderful blend of ancient canals lined with merchant houses and modern architecture.

ETH Zurich

Zurich, Switzerland

ETH Zurich‘s principal strength is in exploration, engineering and environmental geosciences as well as geothermal energy. Zurich has a natural beauty for all seasons – inviting for a swim in the lake in the summer and nearby ski resorts in the winter.

RWTH Aachen

Aachen, Germany

RWTH Aachen‘s principal strength is in geothermal exploration, numerical methods and basin modelling. The city of Aachen is situated on the rim of the Eifel mountains, a historical spa town and home of a world heritage cathedral.
