Hydrogeology Engineering, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
The aim of the Hydrogeology Engineering programme at the 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 quantity and quality of water resources, and remediation contaminated sites. 


Due to the increasing number of various types of surface and underground contamination, an increasingly important task facing our experts in the future is that of meeting the demand for water, in both quantity and quality. 

Engineering tasks requiring knowledge of engineering geology are also on the increase since areas with favorable conditions have already been built up, meaning that ever more complex structures must be constructed on the less suitable territory.


Graduates of the Hydrogeology Engineering programme at the University of Miskolc will become experts in geological and environmental issues related to surface and underground waters as well as the protection of water, water quality, and water resources, in tasks related to water remediation and management, and in hydrogeological aspects of exploiting geothermal energy. 

They will also deal with the hydrogeological, engineering geological and geotechnical problems encountered in the survey, design, and implementation of various engineering structures (buildings, tunnels, railways, underground transport, surface mines, reservoirs, etc.).
