...where one engages 'with water [...] in its various forms.'
Bachelor of Engineering (B.Eng.)
German (proof of proficiency is required)
If you are looking for a career that allows you to work for the benefit of your fellow man and the environment and also promises economic success, then you need look no further than a career in water technology.
This degree programme, unencumbered by conventional civil engineering and process engineering content, focuses exclusively on water as a resource in all its many facets, and is unique in Germany.
Sustainably protecting our most precious raw material—water—and ensuring its long-term availability are major challenges facing mankind. Successfully meeting these challenges requires that considerable efforts of a scientific, technological, and conceptual nature are made globally, and also in Europe and Germany.
As a student of water technology, you will be trained to become an expert not only in water supply, waste water recovery, and water management and hydraulic construction, but also in power generation and nutrient extraction from waste water and residues, irrigation technology, agriculture, and health care.
Potential employers include:
As employees with specialist technical education and training in water resource management are in extremely short supply, the career prospects are excellent.
This degree programme will no longer be offered from winter semester 2020/21.
