Basic goals and competences
Graduates of the undergraduate Geology university study programme obtain fundamental knowledge from all areas of geology. They also obtain a solid grounding in basic natural sciences and mathematics. Students obtain basic knowledge from fields connected with geology or required for practical geology work and when interacting with related areas of expertise. Students can use electives to further extend their knowledge in areas of interest, targeting specific narrower areas in geology. In the framework of their studies, students will discover traditional principles that will be upgraded with the latest discoveries; all this in a modern educational environment and using modern technology. Special attention is paid to practical training, especially field work. By working in groups, undertaking project work and solving problems, students will learn to work in teams, give public talks and do business with customers. Students will be able to test their theoretical knowledge by doing exercises and using it in real-world scenarios; this will help them make an easier transition into practical work after the end of their studies. At the same time, students are expected to learn a sufficient amount of engineering content; this enables them to develop abstract thinking and successfully continue their studies in different second-level programmes.
