Master programme Water Management/Environmental Engineering (E)

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

In this programme students can specialise in: Water Management and Engineering or Maintain Risk Engineering. In the first case specialist knowledge in the fields of hydrology, water management planning, structural hydraulic engineering and river management, cultural water and groundwater management, settlement water management, industrial water management and water protection, hydrobiology and water ecology, waste management is taught. In the field of Mountain Risk Engineering the identification of geo-risks and the planning of protective measures are essential. This is complemented by integrative methods of risk management.

Definition of the field of studies

The aim of the discipline Water Management/Environmental Engineering is sustainable use and safeguarding of the resource “water”. It is imperative that the multifaceted functions of the natural potential water in its interaction with the soil are used and protected in the best possible and purposeful way. Furthermore, it needs to be safeguarded in a sustainable way for our livelihood.


The compulsory modules include both general natural sciences basics (mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry) and specialising courses of water management, such as hydrology, hydraulic engineering, water management or water supply and settlement hygiene in developing countries. Another big area of the degree programme are the interdisciplinary disciplines. A great number of interdisciplinary contents and applications are offered in this context, ranging from automation in surveying to geology of the Quaternary. It is also recommended to do a subject-relevant work placement of at least three weeks, which can be credited towards the elective courses as a compulsory practical seminar.
