Overview

The Physical Land Resources Master’s programme aims to form experts that are able to manage and protect the land as well as manipulate the specifics and properties of the soil. The programme encompasses a variety of different aspects, such as the physics of the soil, meteorology and natural hazards.

This programme offers several skills inherently tied to a Master of Science, such as the ability to identify a problem, form a hypothesis, test it through experiments of your own design in the field and to report results and findings to both your peers and a more general public. Another, very important asset is the ability to think analytically and synthetically, while still being creative – all part of a problem-solving mentality. You’ll gain all the knowledge and skills needed to build a successful career as a scientist.
