In particular, the Tropical Hydrogeology and Environmental Engineering (TropHEE) Master's degree program, offerd at the Darmstadt University of Technology, focuses on methods and advanced techniques that enable participants to find ways of sustainable development of tropical and subtropical countries from a geoscientific point of view.
Although within the broader framework of international development cooperation, TropHEE offers a comprehensive, research-oriented education in hydrogeology and environmental geoscientific science and engineering at the master's level.
- Transport and fate of contaminants with specific knowledge in humid tropical and semi-arid areas;
- Sustainable groundwater protection with a focus on tropical areas;
- Planning, design and implementation of groundwater protection areas and catchment areas as well as catchment management;
- Site investigation and rehabilitation of brown fields and contaminated water and soil;
