Whether you’re an experienced geoscientist or freshly graduated student, the Master of Science in Applied Geosciences is a highly practical programme that helps you build on your knowledge and prepare for your next professional move ahead. With a faculty of leading academic researchers from GUtech, RWTH Aachen University, and experts from universities worldwide, we know what you need to move forward in your career, and we’ve designed the programme for your success.
The Master of Science in Applied Geosciences provides you with theoretical and technical expertise in hydrogeology, petroleum geology, and mineral resources geology.
The MSc programme in applied geosciences with a specialisation in hydrogeology will prepare you to master approaches to design pumping and recharging wells, apply analytical and numerical modelling to groundwater flow, learn hydrogeological testing methods and their applications, and apply geological field methods to groundwater challenges.
The specialisation in petroleum geology will prepare to learn approaches to seismic modelling, seismic attributes and quantitative interpretation techniques, gain 2D and 3D seismic interpretation experience in a workstation environment, master approaches to field development planning and production for an oil/gas accumulation, assess and manage reserves of an oil/gas field, and to learn principles of basin modelling and the main functionalities of basin modelling software, as well as to understand and interpret geochemical information and to evaluate geochemical technical reports. The programme will also provide you an overview of the major techniques for down-hole logging, their physical basis, visualization of the results and interpretation of the data.
The MSc programme in applied geosciences with a specialisation in mineral resources geology will prepare you to master sampling methods and analytical tools used for the exploration of mineral resources, will introduce you to methods for exploring natural and industrial minerals, to interpretation of mineral exploration data and to understand technical reports, and to get insights into the mineral potential of Oman and the Gulf Region, as well as the interpretation of geoelectrical, gravity and geomagnetic data at the scale of mineral deposits.
