In this degree, the students will develop the skills to gain a detailed understanding of today's water industry systems, particularly in the area of management, engineering and process engineering, with the focus being on water collection, treatment and purification. In these areas, students will be taught joined-up thinking across business administration, water management and technical issues. They will be able to understand complex water management systems and apply such systems and technologies internationally with due regard to regional and national contexts. Based on relevant studies in natural and engineering sciences, the study course predominantly includes topics of business and water resources management, advanced engineering subjects, as well as engineering subjects with a focus of water production, water conditioning and wastewater treatment.
The graduates are offered interesting job opportunities (leading positions) in water companies, in water associations as well as in planning. The fields of activity of the graduates therefore lie at the cross-section between process engineering/water technology and water management. The possible application areas are for example: project planning and development of water treatment plants and wastewater treatment plants, plant construction, operation of water treatment plants and wastewater treatment plants and economical aspects as well as realization and evaluation of quality management systems for drinking water suppliers.
