Autumn 2022

Learning outcomes

Knowledge

Upon completion of the program, the candidate will have:

  • basic insights into bedrock and deposits.
  • understanding of various geological processes that shape the landscape and that are active in the Earth's interior.
  • knowledge of different types of geohazards and how these can be discovered and monitored using modern technology.

  • knowledge of what characterizes a scientific source.

Skills

Upon completion of the program, the candidate will be able to:

  • carry out a geological survey
  • use modern methods such as GIS, GPS and geophysical methods (e.g. georadar, 2D resistivity and seismic analysis)
  • carry out project work including data collection and interpretation and prepare written reports
  • master reference handling, citation techniques and source criticism

General competence

Upon completion of the program, the candidate should be able to:

  • investigate a current geological process in a scientific manner,
  • to carry out mapping of geological formations and
