Program Description

Bachelor of Engineering in Water Management

Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences

No restricted admission.

Start of studies

  • The programme begins each winter semester.
  • Applicants with foreign certificates please apply until 31 July via uni-assist e.V.

Programme objectives

The programme objective is to acquire expertise in the field of water management and the capability to acquire further knowledge independently with the aid of scientific methods. A further objective is to master the varied demands of professional life in applied practice, research or teaching, and to apply the rules of engineering confidently in order to deal effectively with the frequently changing tasks that will arise later in the working world. Our water bodies are used for water supply, energy generation, irrigation, navigation, as discharge systems for purified effluents as well as for purposes of leisure and recreation. Even on a regional level, global water scarcity obliges us to manage the resource both in terms of quantity and quality. In areas of intense land use, technological, ecological and process-based demands emerge which have economic consequences and require a legal framework. An integrated approach from the viewpoints of ecological, technological, process engineering and structural aspects gives rise to new results and findings. Natural and technically optimised processes and procedures dominate the structural design and, in relation to the residues generated, bring about a closer interdependency with closed-cycle management.
