The geoscience programmes, on the other hand, are administered jointly by LMU Munich and TU Munich under the umbrella of the Munich Geocenter. A structured tnternational doctoral programme, “THESIS – Complex Processes in the Earth: Theory, Experiment and Simulation,” is also offered within the scope of the Elite Network of Bavaria.
Famous quotes containing the words sciences and/or faculty:
“The great end of all human industry is the attainment of happiness. For this were arts invented, sciences cultivated, laws ordained, and societies modelled, by the most profound wisdom of patriots and legislators. Even the lonely savage, who lies exposed to the inclemency of the elements and the fury of wild beasts, forgets not, for a moment, this grand object of his being.”
—David Hume (17111776)
“The dramatic art would appear to be rather a feminine art; it contains in itself all the artifices which belong to the province of woman: the desire to please, facility to express emotions and hide defects, and the faculty of assimilation which is the real essence of woman.”
—Sarah Bernhardt (18451923)
