Our M.Eng. students spend the third semester doing a practical internship in industry (e.g. manufacturer of equipment for waste water treatment plants) or in engineering offices (e.g. planning of remote controlled sewers or urban rainwater management). The Master thesis is also written during the internship. Thus, you can immediately apply your knowledge and gain profound professional experience at the same time.
The Master’s program is based on a hands-on, interdisciplinary concept. Current topics like sustainability, water risk management and water resource management are interconnected with classic technologies such as water treatment and water circulation. Above all, the three dimensions of sustainability are considered: the economic efficiency, social responsibility and ecological compatibility.
Theory and hands-on training are closely connected, e.g. in group projects at partner companies. Study excursions to pioneering water management facilities as well as discussions with experts from research and industry form an important part of the Master’s program.
