Master student, taking that program, gets an opportunity to get into methods of field and laboratory studies and experiments, gain experience in collecting, interpreting and presenting geological data on a high international level, which is necessary for successful job applications afterwards.

The main goal of the program is to give a master student all the necessary knowledge and experience to make him/her qualified enough for efficient scientific and industrial challenges solving after graduation. The successful graduate would have expertise in laboratory and field studies and experiments, ways of collecting, interpreting and presenting geological data with the help of modern software. Moreover, he\she will have experience in planning and undertake scientific projects (including master thesis research and writing). That broad kind of experience will allow a graduate student to find a job in research and educational institutions, schools, and colleges, and in exploration and prospecting geological companies and companies dealing with engineering and construction either.
