M088 Hydrogeology and Engineering Geology

Groundwater prospecting and exploration

Geotechnical Engineering Research

Training in the field of groundwater science and their interaction with rocks, surface water and atmosphere. The program is aimed at training scientific and pedagogical personnel for postgraduate education and scientific sphere system.

Graduates receive Academic Master’s degree in engineering and technology for 1.5 years or Master of technical sciences for 2 years of study.

The main objectives of the program are mastering immerse study of hydrogeology, the laws related to groundwater movement, formation of their chemical composition, methods of field and laboratory hydrogeological research, principles for developing forecasts.

Special attention is paid to methodology of scientific research, ability to formulate and solve modern scientific and practical problems, to successfully carry out research and management activities. The program includes the opportunity to participate in research projects, as well as exchange programs with foreign universities, so that after graduation from the university, you can get an opportunity to develop your scientific career further.

The list of subjects studied based on this specialty by the program:

• Regional hydrogeology and engineering geology;

• Mineral thermal water deposits in Kazakhstan;

• Ground water exploration;

• Geo-technical Investigation.

Undergraduates practice in hydrogeological, exploration and mining companies throughout Kazakhstan, as part of a double-diploma training with French universities. Under programs of academic mobility, scientific internships are held at leading overseas universities.

Master graduates work in hydrogeological, exploration and mining companies, research and design institutes, centers. The main tasks of hydrogeologists are searching and exploring underground water reserves, assessment of their volume, industrial significance, technological problems’ solutions on providing potable and industrial waters, engineering-geological and hydrogeological surveys and surveys, soil studies.
