Based on a related bachelor in-depth methodic skills as well as scientific and practise-related contents are introduced specifically focusing on indisciplinary methods and techniques. Master degree holder are enabled to self-dependently work on scientific and technical tasks in the hydrosciences and to collaborate in current research and practically-oriented projects. The research-oriented character of the master qualifies for high level work in the hydrosciences as well as for a doctoral thesis.
The focus of the specialisation in Water Resources Management and Modeling of Hydrosystems which is mainly given in English is in the application and development of simulation methods for hydro- and environmental engineering, while the focus of the specialisation in Urban Water Management is in planning, dimensioning, operation and optimisation of urban water management facilities and mainly given in German.
After completion of the master degree holders can work in research institutions, national and international engineering offices and consulting companies, operators of the above-mentioned facilities, software developers and public services (e.g. federal offices, regional or municipal public authorities).

The field of competence Hydrosciences can be chosen as one of two fields of competence in the master program in Civil Engineering, the amount of credits is 24 ECTS and includes one student research project (6 ECTS). A double specialisation in Hydrosciences is also possible, in case the amount of credits is 48 ECTS including two student research projects (12 ECTS).
When selecting the specialisation Water Resources Management and Modeling of Hydrosystems (24 ECTS) the following modules are recommended:
When selecting the specialisation Urban Water Management (24 ECTS) the following modules are recommended:
When selecting the double specialisation Hydrosciences modules amounting to 48 ECTS in total must be chosen from the two above-mentioned specialisations. In case we recommend to make one student research project in each specialization and to chose the Kolloquium Wasserwesen (3 or 6 ECTS).
In addition, further modules out of the field of competence Hydrosciences can be selected:
For the optional modules we recommend lectures of the following chairs:
School VI Planning Building Environment
School III Process Sciences, Institute of Environmental Science and Technologies
School V Mechanical Engineering and Transport Systems
In case of any questions, please consult the professors or scientific staff of the chairs.
