Civil Engineering (M.Eng.)

Field of study: Water Energy and Environment

For engineers seeking to specialize in hydraulic engineering, water resource management, energy systems, and environmental protection in an international context.

The Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management (IWWN) offer students the opportunity to specialize in Energy and Environment as part of the master’s degree programme in International Civil Engineering.

The specialization is aimed at engineers from state and federal water resources management authorities, planning and consultancy agencies, and architects from structural and civil engineering.

The Energy and Environment specialization gives you the skills needed in water resources management and waterway construction, sustainable building and lifecycle analysis, geodata analysis and georisks in civil engineering, renewable energy and structures for energy generation and storage, building energy technology and passive insulation, material cycles, and environmental law.

We place value on linking the curriculum with ongoing research, and offer students interested in research the opportunity to study for a “research master’s”, carrying out in-depth research into one specific area under close academic supervision.

The degree programme is accredited.

For further and more detailed information on the Energy and Environment specialization, please refer to the webpages on the master’s degree programme in "International Civil Engineering".
