A wide range of individual modules assembles the course going through three phases in 4 Terms. A module may comprise a number of lectures, exercises, seminars, workshops or excursions. Phase I (Term 1) contains basic modules, of which some are mandatory and some can be selected. For further advanced courses in phase II (Term 2 / 3), students may choose optional modules to acquire their desired specialisation. The study programme is designed together with the professorships of the Department of Hydrosciences and other cooperation partners. A written thesis in Term 4 (phase III) is going to complete the Master. Prospective students can get a first insight into studying and researching at the Department of Hydrosciences HERE.
