Groundwater Management, International Master Program
Der internationale Masterstudiengang wird in englischer Sprache angeboten.
The international Master program Groundwater Management combines knowledge or hydrosphere, water chemistry, modeling, groundwater protection, and groundwater rehabilitation with management techniques and business administration skills. Candidates will obtain in-depth knowledge on groundwater protection, groundwater management, and clean-up approaches for contaminated aquifers. At the same time, participants will be taught related environment law and general management of geo-resources.
Students will be enabled to work on hydrogeological, hydrological and geochemical questions in both science and applications, such as investigating and developing methods forgroundwater protection, learning water chemistry (field and laboratory methods) and numeric modelling of flow, transport and chemical reactions in aquatic systems. All aspects of groundwater including geothermal use will be taught and applied. Work with data bases and geo information systems is obligatory in order to learn about the administration of geo-scientific data in space and time and about regional planning.
Participants will be enabled and motivated to build up their knowledge by themselves and within teams. They will be trained to assume responsibility as geoscientists and managers.The promotion and improvement of communication, personality and leadership skills will play an important role. Students will also be capable of solving economic and legal questions along with questions related to the weighing of interests from resource conflicts and resource evaluation with modern methods.
