Engineers and natural scientists in water resources and environmental management are qualified to search for responses to worldwide problems of increasing water scarcity, flood risks and environmental pollution. Graduates work together with colleagues in several special fields. The job is multidisciplinary, interesting and globally needed.
- Students in the Water Resources and Environmental Management programme from Leibniz University Hannover obtain interdisciplinary knowledge and key qualifications in the field of sustainable water resources management. Graduates are prepared to take responsible positions e.g. in research and higher environmental administration.
- Quality and availability of water are more and more threatened by societal and environmental change. There is a growing demand for experts in water related subjects, which offers great job opportunities in the developing countries above all.
- In the first semester students obtain knowledge of basics in natural sciences, environmental hydraulics, hydrology and water resources management.
- Afterwards one of the two special fields, Water Resources Management or Sanitary Engineering, has to be elected for the second and third semester.
- These scientific courses are accompanied by courses, which aim at the development and improvement of soft skills required for successful scientific work. In the fourth semester students complete the master thesis under supervision.
