Master programme Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering (E)

Contents and focus of the degree programme:

Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering deals with all difficult grounds, i.e. with buildings that are constructed on a special ground. These are for example high-rise buildings, tunnels, barrages, hydraulic power stations or dams. Basic knowledge especially in engineering geology, soil mechanics, rock mechanics and hydraulics is enhanced and expanded by special skills in geotechnics, rock construction, tunnelling, hydraulics and water management. This includes modelling, calculation and construction of structures above ground or underground in the areas of geotechnics and rock construction as well as hydraulic structures, their planning, construction including construction management and maintenance and supervision.

Definition of the field of studies

Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering shapes the technical environment. It designs, plans, constructs, builds and operates structures and is responsible for the infrastructure. Tasks also include the development of concepts, analysis and expertise. The work becomes evident in visible and non-visible structures, e.g. bridges, sewage treatment plants.


The discipline consists of four elective catalogues, a soft skills catalogue, elective subjects and a master's thesis. The degree programme concludes with a master's thesis and the defence of the master's thesis including presentation and a master's examination.
