Special features regarding teaching

The teaching and learning methods in EES are highly applied. Even lectures are interactive and discursive due to the size of the course and allow for student-centred learning. Many lectures follow the concept of the "flipped classroom", where students do preparatory homework on the basis of which the topic is then discussed in greater depth. Tutorials consist of exercises with laboratory elements. Where possible, examples and empirical data from the geosciences will be used in learning methods.

Exchange universities for stay abroads

University of Aberdeen, the UK; Rice University, USA; Texas Tech University, USA; Cornell University, USA; Drexel University, USA; Washington State University, USA; Underwood International College, South Korea; Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea; University of Nottingham Ningbo, China; Amsterdam University College, the Netherlands

Special features regarding the equipment

100 m2 Geochemistry lab for water, rock and biological specimens; rock preparation lab; GIS (Geographic Information Systems) computer lab including seismic analyses; petroleum systems modelling; high-performance computing; geophysical equipment; access to labs of large-scale research establishments; 400 m2 OceanLab with flow channel, test basins, research boat; pressure lab; online observatories; 200 m2 photobioreactors; internet-controlled deep sea robots; access to field stations and high-sea research vessels.

Special features regarding research activities

Key research areas: Bio-geochemical material cycles, environment and raw materials, water chemistry, deposits, anthropological influence, trace elements, biological oceanography, astrobiology, marine geochemistry and marine physics, geophysics, geoinformatics, modelling, carbon cycle, resource management, monitoring, R&D in the fields of ocean robotics, CO2 mitigation and marine resources, remote sensing with satellites and robots. Close association with large (inter)national projects, which ensures the early involvement of student education in research and development.

Support for founders

In the third year, all students can choose the "World Track". As part of this option, there is the opportunity to participate in a programme to develop a start-up company. The programme consists of events on entrepreneurship topics specifically for innovative start-ups and the development of one's own business idea as well as the preparation of a business plan.

Other special features

Cooperation with major research institutions in the EU and USA; if required individually-prepared stays abroad, involvement of students in major (inter)national projects; University/industry research associations in the areas of Marine Research and Resource Management; English-speaking campus university; students from over 100 countries; trans-disciplinary and problem-oriented courses of study and research; individual student support; variety of student activities in the fields of Economics, Politics, Society, Culture, Sports, Sustainability; alumni networks.
