Geographic Sciences

A masters is awarded to students who have completed postgraduate level study in a specific field of study or area of professional practice while demonstrating a high level of mastery during the process.

Geographic sciences is a field that encompasses human activity and the physical makeup of planet Earth. Studies in this field can include the interaction between the two, as well as the technology used for data analysis.

France, officially the French Republic, is a unitary semi-presidential republic located mostly in Western Europe, with several overseas regions and territories.

Best Masters in Geographic Sciences in France 2017/2018. ENVIRONMENTS- ECONOMIC GEOLOGY-SOIL MANAGEMENT-GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING-GEOMATERIAL-NANOMATERIAL IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science : the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil. Why clay minerals ? Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest. In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology, because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials. Clay knowledge is extremely inter- and multidisciplinary as it includes geological, geotechnical, mineralogical, physico-chemical and bio-geochemical aspects. The IMACS is the first master course addressing... [-]

Master in Quaternary Archaeology and Human Evolution (Erasmus Mundus) This master's degree has three main areas: research into human palaeoecology and prehistory, palaeoanthropology, geology and palaeoontology of the Quaternary; archaeological intervention; and the management, conservation and socialisation of archaeological heritage. It shares objectives and educational activities with the degrees in History and Anthropology and Human Evolution through introductory subjects to a specialisation in archaeology. It offers a specialised, career-oriented degree designed to prepare students for research in the field of Quaternary archaeology without neglecting the important demands of society and the labour market. It aims to train students to evaluate and draw up reports on archaeological interventions so that they can work as specialists in the field of archaeology or in the management of archaeological heritage Career opportunities Research in Quaternary archeology and human evolution, with specialisations in the disciplinary branches, including field and rescue archeology, dissemination and museumisation of human evolution and Quaternary archeology, and conservation and restoration of archaeological material of the Pleistocene. Timetable Classes are held in the morning and afternoon/evening from Monday to Friday. The face-to-face part of each subject is concentrated in two weeks. Language of instruction Catalan/Spanish/English Participating universities University of Ferrara (Italy) Polytechnic Institute of Tomar (Portugal) University of Tràs-os-Montes and Alto Douro (Portugal) National Museum of Natural History (Paris, France) FIRST YEAR: Compulsory subjects Computer Science and Statistics Applied to Archaeology Geology of the Quaternary Prehistory of Asia and Oceania Prehistory in Europe Prehistory in Africa Excavation and Record Methods in Quaternary...

Science Engineer Of The Land And Environment

UniLaSalle
Campus Full time 5 years September 2017 France Beauvais

The fragility of our planet requires the involvement of specialists able to carry out development projects environmentally friendly. Expert in the study of sub-soil, geological engineer is now the essential pivot of all exploration, exploitation and development, both in land area than sailor. [+]

Best Masters in Geographic Sciences in France 2017/2018. Engineer in Geosciences and Environment Please Note That this program is Entirely taught in FRENCH Strong population growth worldwide requires increased research sources of drinking water, energy resources or mineral but also to optimize their use. The fragility of our planet requires the involvement of specialists able to carry out development projects environmentally friendly. Expert in the study of sub-soil, geological engineer is now the essential pivot of all exploration, exploitation and development, both in land area than sailor. Specialist in natural risks in geotechnics In the midst of Buildings and Public Works (BTP), the engineer must ensure soil stability to prevent the collapse of structures. Its main tasks in civil engineering will then collaborate in the work of recognition, the dimensioning and construction of various structures such as dams, bridges, dams, tunnels, highways ... It is also able to develop the territory to protect resources and prevent the collapse of the land. Specialist hydrogeology as industrial risks This engineer is often assigned to the prevention of industrial risks in connection with the environment. It can also become a professional storage of waste, water management or soil remediation. For example, when industrial uses water in its processes, wastewater is produced. We must then process the order not to pollute the rivers, groundwater, soils. Mineral Resources Specialist Today, the environment we live in is made up of minerals and metals, become vital in the functioning of our society. Thus, geological engineer involved in... [-]

Master in Cultural Heritage (Spanish)

 

In the present retain traces of a cultural past without whose understanding we can hardly understand our current way of life, our beliefs and our customs. That past is apparent in the landscape and regional planning, the structure and architecture of the cities, in thinking, the way of speaking or artistic expressions of various kinds. It is a heritage that should be investigated but that experience tells us, it can also be exploited and disseminated.

Thanks to the past legacy in the form of significant organizations, municipalities get substantial revenue from visitors who come to know him better and enjoy it, of the various aids for preservation and dissemination, as well as the prestige that reach the localities under its ability to maintain and use....
