Geoscience Field Trips

Fieldwork is an important part of geoscience, and GeoZentrum Nordbayern offers a broad spectrum of field trips. Students are given the option to explore geologically significant regions across Europe. Regular destinations are Greece, Sweden, Scotland, and of course Germany. Fieldwork brings geology to life, making it tangible and invigorating.

Laboratories and Analytical Methods

Modern geoscience requires specialised chemical and physical analytical methods. As an important part of geoscience, students take practical courses in various departmental laboratories. Here they learn important skills, techniques and their application for a wide range of analytical methods. The foundations taught in laboratory training is beneficial not only for work in research, but also in fields where laboratory data is important, such as environmental consultancy.
