The study programme aims at deepening and diversifying the students' knowledge, abilities, and competences in applied geosciences, with a distinct focus on hydrogeology and environmental engineering in the framework of international development cooperation.
The programme encompasses two lines of specialisation, one being more geoscience-related focussing on hydrogeology, and one being more engineering-related focussing on environmental engineering. The hydrogeology specialisation includes modules such as the following: Hydrogeology, Hydrochemistry, Hydrogeochemistry, Soil and Unsaturated Zone, Aquifer Sedimentology, Isotope and Tracer Techniques, Groundwater Modelling, Geophysical Methods, and Geo-Information Systems (GIS). The environmental engineering specialisation includes modules such as the following: Integrated Water Resources Management, Water and Wastewater Treatment, Water Supply Systems, Hydraulic Engineering, Applied Microbiology, and Flood/River Management.
Compulsory modules independent from the chosen specialisation include a field trip to a semiarid region, a project seminar featuring project team work and scientific writing, and a module on setting up research concepts. The programme will be completed by the preparation of a Master’s thesis.
