Geoscientific Project

Lecturers: Tilo von Dobeneck

Content:

When choosing a project concept, the scope of possible orientations is very broad. Every proposed project idea is individually examined and will be approved, if it fulfills the stated intentions, appears realistic and adequate with regard to its scale and complexity. Possible projects are for example

· a “field or mapping project” at land or sea without major laboratory components using field methods of geology, geophysics or mineralogy, also as contribution to a commercial or research project

· a “media project” like an extensive popular science article, an internet production, a video movie, a radio emission, an exhibit or a scholar teaching unit on a geoscientific topic

· a “technical project” for development, improvement and testing of practical geoscientific gear or instrumentation

· an “external project” at a company, organization or authority, which is geoscientifically demanding and has presentable aims, operations and results. External projects can be arranged as internship. Before signing a contract, students must ensure that they will have insight into the entire project chain and that they may freely report on their own obtained results

· an “international project” comprising geoscientific activities abroad and cooperations with foreign partners
