SHORT DESCRIPTION: The aim of the programme is to train geologists and geophysical engineers who have the knowledge of geology, geophysics and geoinformatics and skills necessary for the prospecting and exploration of geological structures and mineral resources, the assessment of mineral resources and reserves, conduct environmental geological surveys and delineate environmental pollution.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: Starting in 2022 September, it is offered with imbedded mobility window and special field work training activities. The Earth Science Engineering MSc with this improvement is a part of the TIMREX education programme, supported by the EIT RawMaterials. Students may spend their third semester at the partner university - Lulea Technical University, Sweden or Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Poland - using mobility window and participate in a specific field exploration camp between the two semesters, as well as spend internship in the frame of the RIS Internship opportunity.

Structure of the mobilities and details are found at the https://timrexproject.eu/2022-2023-cohort/ page. Students will recieve during graduation the Earth Science Engineering MSc diploma of the University of Miskolc, however, the training will contain elements - in cooperation with the academic and non-academic partners of the TIRMEX project - that aim to train students towards the innovative mineral resource exploration.

SPECIALIZATIONS: Geological engineering, Geophysical engineering

ENTRANCE EXAMINATION: 

Stage 1 – Eligibility Screening:
Based on the documents uploaded to the Dreamapply system filtering out applicants who are not eligible (relevance of bachelor’s degree to those listed in the programme offer description, no language certificate (B2 or higher) of any kind, or a certificate of study conducted in English).

Stage 2 – Evaluation based on uploaded documents:
Based on the documents uploaded to the Dreamapply system, applicants may be awarded 30 points. Professional background (qualification and work experience) based on transcript of records (15 points) and motivation letter (10 points) as well as ranking of HEI where the previous degree was obtained (5 points).

Stage 3 – Online Entrance Exam:
During the 20-30 minute online entrance exam, we use pre-set entrance questions to assess the applicant’s management knowledge and skills related to profession, topic of previous thesis work or project assignment and language proficiency. Applicants can score a maximum of 70 points (professional background: 50 points + spoken language: 20 points).

Stage 4 – Final Evaluation:
Applicants can score a maximum of 100 points (evaluation based on uploaded documents: 30 points and online entrance exam: 70 points). Applicants who score at least 60 points will be admitted to the MBA program. Applicants who score less than 60 points will be rejected.
 

CAREER PROSPECTS: The expected area of utilization of professional qualifications is represented by mining and exploration companies, research institutes and specialized authorities that deal with the management, planning and regulation of mineral raw materials. In addition to the knowledge of earth sciences, the strong engineering training makes the students graduating here to be specialized in mineral exploration and exploitation as well as supervision of the applied earth science directions and technologies.
