Energy, Resources & Storage - ERS

The profile Energy, Resources & Storage - ERS conveys a deep understanding of the upper earth crust used by humans. Topics include ore deposits, fossil energy, geothermal energy, mineral raw materials, underground storage for regenerative energies & repositories, and much more.

The study program is divided into cumpolsory Key Competences (19 Credits, CR), elective Key Competences (36 CR), elective Specialization in Geosciences (25 CR), Specific Supplements (10 CR) and the Master Thesis (30 CR). Please refer to the tabs for more details on the variety of electable modules in their respective category. More details about the thesis can be found here.

The profile Energy, Resources & Storage - ERS is taught in English.
