Geology is a perspective and important specialization for development of Ukraine.
We provide training in the following specializations:

“Marine Geology”

Marine Geology is a geological branch that concerns the history, structure, processes, and mineral deposits of the World Ocean. It includes studies of rock and sediment composition (mineralogy, petrography, lithology, and geochemistry), geological history (stratigraphy, paleontology, and historical geology), dynamics of processes (tectonics, structural geology, and geophysics), and methods of mineral deposit prospecting and exploitation.

“Ecological-Geological Survey and Monitoring” 

Ecological-Geological Survey and Monitoring consists of a series of disciplines that include studies of geological and anthropogenic processes in the Earth`s crust and on its surface, in the World Ocean, and along its coastal zones. Also considered are such aspects as methods of ecological survey, monitoring of geological, geochemical, and geodynamic processes, and analysis and forecast of their influence on ecosystems and humankind in the past, present, and future,.
