The Section of Ecological Engineering offers courses of 6 CP per semester in the Master's programmes “Tropical Hydrogeology and Environmental Engineering” (TropHEE) and “Applied Geosciences”.
These teaching activities encompass:
- student internships,
- excursions and
- supervision of bachelor and master thesis.
Our teaching is inter- and transdisciplinary and focuses on concepts and methods for a sustainable design, management and operation of urban water systems in developing countries.
A continuous integration of research results in our teaching activities is our aim. Participants in our teaching activities are encouraged to contribute to the content and design of these activities, thereby creating a highly motivated teaching and learning environment.
