Geo-expertise at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg

Geo-expertise is focused at Freiberg´s University at the Faculty for Geoscience, Geoengineering and Mining and comprises both Geoscience and Geoengineering. Disciplines covered are Geology, Paleontology, Sedimentology, Tectonics, Hydrogeology, Environmental Geology Economical Geology (Ores, Coal, Oil and Gas, Sand, Clay and Gravel mining), Geomathematics, Geoinformatics, Remote Sensing, Geophysics, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Soil Sciences, Geo-Ecology, Soil- and Rock-mechanics, Engineering Geology, Mining, Civil Engineering Foundation, Civil Tunnel Design, Slope Engineering, Drilling Techniques, Fluid Mechanics, Exploration and Subsurface Storage Techniques as well as Mine-Surveying, Photogrammetry and Geodesy. Research is ranging from fundamental to applied research and development of industrial applications. Eight study courses are offered both for undergraduate and graduated students:

  • Geocomputing
  • Geo-Ecology
  • Geology/Paleontology
  • Geoinformatics
  • Mineralogy
  • Geophysics
  • Geo-techniques und Mining
  • Mine-Surveying und Geodesy

More then 900 students are enrolled with 15% of them being from foreign countries. A fixed staff of 150 persons including teaching and research staff, administrative officers and technicians represent the faculty. 25 of them are full Professors, about 50 assistant and associate Professors. Additional staff paid by third parties and research councils is not included in this numbers. Trendsetting research projects are listed in the following being in compliance with geo-related priorities of DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgesellschaft) and BMBF (German Ministry for Research):

  • Remote sensing, Geo Information Systems and Geo Informatics
  • Geochemistry, Isotope-Geochemistry and Geo-Chronology
  • Exploration, Exploitation, Rehabilitation, and Management of Groundwater
  • Soil, Water and Atmosphere Protection including Flood research
  • Geo-bio-Techniques, environmental Microbiology and Ecology
  • Geo-Monitoring and environmental Sensors
  • Geo-Risiks und Geo-Hazards
  • Marine resources und Ocean Mining
  • Tomography und 4D-Geophysics
  • Underground Buildings
  • Mine Rehabilitation, Soil Recycling
  • Clay, Sand and Gravel Mining
  • Exploration, Exploitation and Storage of non-renewable Hydrocarbons
  • Geothermal and alternative energy
  • Geomechanics und Kinematics of rocks
  • Environmental and Geo-related modeling

Freiberg´s expertise is integrated in a German and international network of Universities, Research Institutes (e.g. UFZ-Halle-Leipzig, GFZ Potsdam, BGR Hannover) and Enterprises. Third-party-funds account for 7.500.000 € per year.
