Description M1
The earth science specialization trains engineers in geophysics, geotechnology and hydrosciences.
This specialization is a solid scientific program centered on the analysis of soil and hydrogeology. Graduates can work in fields related to foundations and construction, energy and water resources, natural disaster prevention and the diagnosis of soil and groundwater contamination. These areas of study are covered in greater detail in the last year with a choice between two options – Geophysics and Geotechnics or Hydrosciences.
The course is highly practical and teaches mastery of essential software.
Foreign exchanges and internships are encouraged, as companies in this sector are often international.
Earth science graduates occupy positions as research engineers, construction site engineers and research and development engineers in the following sectors: civil engineering, building and public works, foundations, mineral resource, petroleum, natural disasters, geoscience, water resources,
