Programme is designed to prepare highly qualified universal Geologists professionals whose intellectual and practical skills match the requirements of modern Geosciences and knowledge-based technologies. The graduates will be able: to demonstrate and apply a comprehensive geological knowledge and understanding and effectively apply it in scientific investigations and practical activities; to analyze critically and systematically evaluate information and data; to develop and implement the research innovations in areas related to the Geosciences in complex environmental research and various economic development areas; independently solve the geological problems in the context of modern science achievements; compete in the national and international labour market.

Why this programme?

  • The programme introduces to the processes involved in scientific research and provides the knowledge and skills needed for a career as a professional geologist, hydrogeologist or engineer geologist.
  • Applies theoretical knowledge and practical skills to real geological problems and provides a suitable foundation for work in different branches of geology or a multidisciplinary area involving environmental protection, geotechnical engineering on others, which directly or indirectly relates to geological problems.

What's after?

  • Pursue a career at enterprises, research, and state institutions dealing with scientific and practical geological activities and investigations, exploration of natural resources, environmental research, regulation, exploitation and protection of underground resources, territorial planning.
  • Continue studies of higher (Doctoral) level in Geology and the other natural sciences in Lithuania and abroad.

 

"I decided to study geology with a desire to know the unknown. At the time, I had no clue where and what I will do after my studies. While studying geology, I received not only knowledge but the desire to learn and seek answers. I felt that I am part of that small community of geologists, and this was influenced by professors and lecturers who accepted me and helped to change and to become a true naturalist. Studies help the formation of a new view of the earth. You begin to understand how the earth is functioning and how closely some processes are connected even it does not look like this at first glance. Textbooks were important but it was only one side of a coin. The second was a practical fieldwork. Understanding how to collect and later analyse field material is paramount. Besides, it was a lot of fun as well."
