Introduction

The master's degree Mineral Resources and Geological Hazards is an interuniversity degree coordinated by the University of Barcelona and the Autonomous University of Barcelona and offers two possible specializations:


  • Earth Dynamics and Mineral Resources
  • Geological Hazards

The specialization Earth Dynamics and Mineral Resources is intended to provide professionals with in-depth knowledge of the magmatic, hydrothermal, metamorphic and sedimentary processes that produce diverse types of mineral deposits, and prepare them to apply this knowledge in exploration. Students will also acquire skills in the most modern quantitative methods used in the characterization and evaluation of mineral resources.

The specialization Geological Hazards seeks to equip students with knowledge of the techniques used in cartography, analysis, modelling and evaluation of any danger or hazard posed by potentially destructive geological phenomena and processes. Students will also acquire skills in the methods and techniques currently employed in strategies aimed at mitigating geological hazards.

Learning objectives

The master's degree Mineral Resources and Geological Hazards seeks principally to complete students' training in the concepts, methodologies and techniques currently used by research teams involved in the characterization and modelling of mineral resources and in the identification, analysis, evaluation and management of geological hazards. Students in the master's degree Mineral Resources and Geological Hazards will:


  • Obtain professional preparation to meet the most demanding requirements of companies engaged in the exploration and exploitation of mineral resources.
  • Expand and consolidate their knowledge of geological materials and structures and the characterization and modelling of natural phenomena and processes that could produce a hazard.
  • Enhance their knowledge of methodology in order to work successfully as researchers in the analysis and modelling of mineral deposits and the analysis and prevention of geological hazards.
  • Acquire this training within a solid conceptual framework of general and specialized geological knowledge, enabling students to develop general standards in the application of these techniques in each circumstance.
