    No compulsory apprenticeships are planned in the second-cycle studies.

    Szczegółowe zasady realizacji programu studiów ustalone przez Dziekana Wydziału (tzw. zasady studiowania)

    Zasady wpisu na kolejny semestr:

    • The student receives an entry for the next semester, if he obtained the number of ECTS points assigned to this semester in the current semester (27-33).
    • Passing the semester of studies and confirmation of getting an entry for the next semester of study is made in the University’s ICT system no later than one week from the beginning of the next semester of study.
    • The condition for passing the last semester of studies is obtaining the credit for all obligatory modules of classes included in the plan of this semester of studies, with the exception of the diploma thesis.

    Zasady wpisu na kolejny semestr studiów w ramach tzw. dopuszczalnego deficytu punktów ECTS :

    If the number of ECTS points assigned to a given semester is not obtained, the student may apply for entry for the next semester of studies with the so-called “Acceptable total deficit of points”. The application in this case should be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty before the beginning of the semester concerned.

    Dopuszczalny deficyt punktów ECTS:
    Organizacja zajęć w ramach tzw. bloków zajęć:

    The electivity is carried out by selecting individual modules of classes in semesters II and III. These are modules for humanities, engineering, which allow for better adjustment of the program to the interests of students, but also allow to meet the requirements in the education of geophysical engineers.

    Semestry kontrolne:
    Warunki odbywania indywidualnego programu studiów:

    An individual study program, including a study plan, may be awarded to the student:
    - completed at least the first semester of study and obtained an average with not less than 4.25;
    - a disabled person;
    - being in a difficult life situation;
    - participating in sports competitions at the national or international level;
    - wanting to complete part of the studies at another university;
    - studying in more than one field of study;
    - elected to the collegial body of the University;
    - a foreigner taking a Polish language course.
    Individualization of the study program, including the study plan, may consist of:
    - individual selection of modules of classes, methods and forms of education. In this case, the Dean appoints a guardian (IPS) from among the Faculty employees with a doctorate degree at least.
    - modification of the form of credit and exams.
    Individualization of the study program, including the study plan, may relate to classes within one or several semesters or the whole course of study, but it may not lead to changes in the directional learning outcomes or to extend the date of completion of studies.

    Warunki realizacji praktyk zawodowych, w tym w szczególności system kontroli praktyk i ich zaliczania :

    Zasady obieralności modułów zajęć:

    Depending on the elective module, it is activated on the basis of the minimum number of applications allowed.

    Zasady obieralności ścieżek kształcenia, ścieżek dyplomowania lub specjalności albo kwalifikacji na nie :

    During registration in the recruitment system for second-degree studies, the candidate indicates the specializations on which he would like to take up education (so-called list of preferences) from the list presented by the Dean. Specialties on this list (at least two) should be ranked by the candidate in order from the most to the least desirable. The qualification for particular specialties is based on the recruitment rate (W), which depends on the result of the entrance / directional examination and the average grade from the first-cycle studies. On this basis, ranking lists of particular specialties are created. The Dean decides on the limits of places on specialties, taking into account the possibility of diplomacy in individual cathedrals, the number of persons qualified for the second-cycle studies, declarations of candidates submitted during recruitment and the financial situation of the faculty. If, due to the lack of a sufficient number of candidates, a decision is made by the Dean not to start education in a given specialty, the candidates who indicated it in the first place will be included in the ranking lists of specializations indicated in the second place.

    Warunki i wymagania związane z przygotowaniem projektów dyplomowych i prac dyplomowych oraz realizacją procesu dyplomowania :

    1. The condition for obtaining a diploma of completion of the second-cycle studies at full-time studies at AGH-UST, in the field of applied geophysics, is the total fulfillment of the conditions:
    • passing all the modules of classes provided for in the curriculum,
    • preparation of the thesis (master’s thesis),
    • passing the second degree (master’s) diploma exam consisting of a general directional exam, presentation of the diploma thesis and discussion on it (defense of thesis),
    2. The topic of the diploma thesis is selected before the end of the first semester.
    The diploma thesis is evaluated by the supervisor / supervisor of the work and the reviewer, at least one of whom holds at least the postdoctoral degree.
    3. A student who has completed all the study modules provided for in the curriculum may be admitted to the general final examination.
    The general second degree examination takes place in written form and includes knowledge in the field of specialization. 4 questions will be drawn from a set of 60 questions divided into 4 thematic groups (one from each group). From among randomly drawn questions, the student chooses 3 and the answers to these questions are subject to evaluation in accordance with the rules set out in the Regulations of the AGH University of Science and Technology. The exam takes place according to the schedule presented by the Dean no later than 30 days before the planned date of the exam. The schedule includes a basic deadline and one correction term. Issues and examples of questions will be made available to students no later than 30 days before the date of the general directional examination. In the case of receiving a negative assessment (the arithmetic average of the answers to questions below 50%) from the general examination at the basic and correctional dates or failing to pass this examination, the dean deletes the student from the student list.
    4. Defense of diploma theses is conducted in Departments in front of committees appointed by the Faculty Dean.
    Only the diploma thesis, which was positively evaluated by the supervisor and the reviewer, registered in the dean’s office no later than 5 days before the planned defense, and the contractor passed the general directional examination and submitted all the required documents can be accepted for defense.
    The defense consists of the overt part, during which the author presents the work and discussion about the work and the secret part (without the participation of the student) during which the committee evaluates the presentation of the work and discussion, and then calculates the final grade of the second-degree diploma exam and places it in the diploma examination of the second degree.
