The bachelor programme consists of compulsory subjects dealing with mathematics, chemistry, physics, economics, geosciences and their methods, petroleum geology, environmental and hydrogeology and elective subjects, which can be chosen freely from the courses offered by all recognised Austrian and foreign universities. During the bachelor programme a subject-relevant work placement must be done. If a work placement outside the university is not possible or only partly possible, the rest of the period to complete the placement is to be replaced by subject-relevant work at a department of the Montanuniversität. The degree programme concludes with an examination before a committee in the subjects “General Geosciences” and “Applied Geosciences”. The latter one consists of two parts, which are to be chosen from the following compulsory subjects: applied geophysics, petroleum geology, geomechanics and engineering geology, environmental and hydrogeology, economic geology. The degree programme is completed with the successfully passed examination before the committee and a pass grade on both bachelor theses. The first of these theses is to contain field mapping exercises and geological reporting and the topic of the second one can be chosen from various thematic subjects.
