The Faculty of Earth Sciences and Environmental Management was established in 2006, but its roots lie in the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of Wrocław. Here geologists and geographers pursue their passions and uncover the secrets of the Earth.
The faculty consists of:
Studies at the faculty are tertiary, with first-cycle bachelor’s and engineering programme, second-cycle master’s programme, and doctoral studies.
The students can select from 5 fields: geography, spatial planning, tourism, geology, geological engineering – in residential or non-residential form – and environmental conservation, an interdisciplinary field created jointly with the Faculty of Biological Sciences.
Curricula are designed to meet the demands of the labour market. They ensure complete education that allows to acquire professional skills and pursue individual interests. The main objective of the teaching process is to provide students with knowledge, skills, and social competence.
The graduates acquire specialised skills in geochemistry and waste management, mining geology, hydrogeology, petrology and applied mineralogy, processes occurring in natural and socio-economic environment, tourism, restaurant and hotel sector management, learn how to use latest analytical technologies in GIS system and to plan the development of tourism on regional level, in protected areas and with regard to tourist attractions.
The theoretical knowledge and practical skills allow the graduates to work independently. They work on deposit or groundwater exploration and documentation, compile documentation for construction industry, find employment in expert and consulting teams preparing planning documents on local, regional, and national level, in national and local government administration units, tourist, geoinformatic and cartographic companies, R&D units.
The young geographers and geologists can become members of vibrant student scientific groups.
Under Erasmus+ programme the students can pursue a part of their studies at chosen foreign institutions, and under MOST programme – at domestic universities.
Scientific potential of the faculty is based on its capable research and teaching staff.
