The Master of Science Programme was established in 2007 by the Department of Earth Sciences and the Department of Physics, with the contribution of the Department of Information Engineering, of the University of Pisa, and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the Polytechnic of Milan. The course is 2 year-long full-time, leading to the acquisition of 120 ECTS of which 40 credits are dedicated to the M.Sc. thesis work. The programme is offered in English.

Exploration and Applied Geophysics is a discipline that integrates physics principles and knowledges with knowledges of geology, engineering, and digital processing. It develops and applies non-invasive research methods aimed at the study of the shallow parts (from a few centimeters to a few kilometers) of the Earth and of man-made manufactures (Other Information).

The course is research-oriented and it develops through a process aimed at a deeper methodological understanding of different surveying techniques (electric, magnetic, radar, seismic, gravimetric), and of methods related to the processing, analysis and interpretation of the data (Objectives of the Degree). The principal applications are in the domains of exploration and production of energy and mineral resources, of investigation for engineering and environment, and of geological and archaeological research (Job Prospects). During the course of studies, the students will acquire hands-on experience using industry standard software and equipment.

Admission requirements: the course is open to all students with a pertinent scientific bachelor's degree, or other equivalent or superior foreign academic qualification. Our records show that past students have come from a wide range of disciplines including Geology, Physics, Telecommunications, and/or Electronics Engineering, Civil and/or Environmental Engineering, Environmental Sciences, Mathematics. Admission to the Master’s Degree course is subject to passing a test by which we evaluate the candidate’s skills and motivations, and verify that the necessary requirements for the course are satisfied. A knowledge of the English language equivalent or superior to B2 level is desirable.

Double Degree Programme: the University of Pisa and the Montan University of Leoben (Austria) have established a Double Degree Programme “International Master of Applied and Exploration Geophysics”. Students will be awarded a double diploma in Applied and Exploration Geophysics issued by the two partner Universities. Students enrolled in the Master of Science Programme in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at the University of Pisa may also apply for admission to the “International Master of Applied and Exploration Geophysics”.

  • Webinar: "Petrolio dalle andesiti, Neuquén Basin, Argentina" by Sergio Rocchi
    This webinar is intended as a story of the field trip of the LASI 6 Conference (The physical geology of subvolcanic systems: laccoliths, sills and dykes, Malargüe, Mendoza Province, Argentina, 24-29 November 2019 - http://lasi6.org). The webinar is not a report on a scientific study of a specific topic, but is structured as a presentation of the geological peculiarities of the Neuquén Basin, such as the enormous yet little known Quaternary volcanic province, the superb exposures of the Miocene sub-volcanic bodies, and the oil field with unconventional reservoirs, fundamental support of the economy of Argentina.
    The webinar is in Italian, with slides in English. Questions can be asked in English.
