Geophysics is dedicated to the study of the Earth using the methods of physics. It is the study of the physical properties and processes in the Earth's interior, on the Earth's surface and in the Earth's outer space.
During the Master's degree program, students should acquire the knowledge and scientific skills to solve complex problems in the field of geosciences and geoengineering as well as in other socially relevant areas using the methods of geophysics. The program is geared towards modern and future-oriented geophysics, which encompasses geosciences, physics, mathematics and computer science.
