The aim of this Hydrogeological Engineering programme from University of Miskolc is to train highly qualified engineers who are competent in dealing with geological and environmental issues concerning surface and subsurface waters, the protection of the quantity and quality of groundwater resources, and the remediation of contaminated sites.


The main focus of the Hydrogeological Engineering programme, offered by the Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering from University of Miskolc, is placed on groundwater resources, which play an increasingly significant role in drinking water supply, mineral and medicinal water utilisation and geothermal energy production. Flow and transport modelling, groundwater management and well hydraulics are also very strong parts of this internationally acknowledged MSc program. 

Graduates will be capable of solving problems related to the subsurface construction of various engineering structures (buildings, tunnels, railways, underground transport systems, reservoirs, earthworks, roads, surface mines, underground mines, etc.). Graduates will also be capable of carrying out and coordinating tasks related to research and development in their academic fields and of continuing their studies at doctoral level.
