The new Faculty Brochure is printed!

The printed information brochure of our Geosciences Faculty appeared last in 2012 and has been out of stock for some time. Thanks to much highly appreciated support from our sections and professorships and great efforts by Heike Piero, a new edition with up-to-date information and hundreds of new and attractive illustrations could be reprinted.
The print version is now on shelf at our faculty administration and will be mailed to all our section heads for further distribution. An electronic pdf version is available for download at our website´s "Public > Information Materials" submenu. more
