Geosciences specialization

The objectives of this specialty are designed to train students for careers in research in geology, hydrogeology, hydrology, paleontology, geophysics, geochemistry, and geotechnical and the application of these disciplines. The methods of measurements and modeling of Earth Sciences will be addressed in close association with the observation of objects on land, at sea or from space.

Course offered:

  • basins, oil, lithosphere
  • geomaterials and Mineral Resources
  • Planetology shared journey Ile de France
  • hydrology, hydrogeology
  • Geology-Geotechnical
  • Applied Geophysics: Resources and Environment
  • Earth Sciences
  • soil and rocks mechanics in their environment
  • Acquisition of cultural knowledge enable a multidisciplinary approach of the Environment. This baggage includes tools and a coherent set of specialized knowledge about Earth system processes and how human societies have changed and continue to change. It leads to an ability to analyze and model complex situations by implementing appropriate tools
  • Ability to search for information
  • Ability to implement a project team
  • Ability to communicate findings in French and in English

geosciences, geomaterials, geology, geophysics, hydrology, soils mecanics


Possible opportunities for students are:

  • a thesis in the field of Geosciences: geodynamics, tectonics, geomaterials, geology and petroleum geophysics, sedimentology, paleontology, paleo-environments, hydrology, hydrogeology, surface geophysics, in particular the doctoral school of UPMC "Geosciences Paris and Natural Resources. " These arguments are supported by both the Ministry and grants by partners as ENSMP, IFP, CEA or industry (including petroleum, glass and ceramics, raw materials or public works).
  • Preparation for competitive examinations for secondary education. In this case, two UE of 6 ECTS each are provided in S1. They will be complemented by two UE in biology with the specialization "Molecular and Cellular Biology."
  • Employment in the field of applications including the oil industry, recognition and exploitation of natural resources, development and management of active sites and abandoned sites.
