About Scholarships: –
Water Resources and Environmental Management is a research-oriented international Master of Science programme delivered in English. Students acquire interdisciplinary specialist knowledge and key transferable skills in sustainable water resources management. By the time they have completed the programme, graduates are capable of taking on positions of responsibility, e.g. in research, for water authorities or senior environmental administrative bodies. Sustainable development in all areas of water resources management and sanitary engineering is extremely important for present and future generations. After all, the quality and availability of water are increasingly under threat from societal and environmental change. Problems such as water scarcity, flooding and environmental pollution are increasing throughout the world, resulting in a great demand for experts.
Engineers in the field of water resources and environmental management are qualified to seek responses to these global problems. Since the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodetic Science has a strong background in water-related sciences, it offers the ideal frame for this Master’s degree programme. Professors at the faculty have excellent international ties and undertake a range of other measures to enable the faculty to cooperate closely with partners abroad. In this English-language Master’s programme, students are integrated in research teams, many of which are involved in international research projects.
- The scholarship is fully funded, monthly payments of € 850 for graduates
- Health insurance and personal accident insurance payments
- Travel allowance, unless these expenses are covered by the home country or other source of funding
- Students should have acquired a basic knowledge of water resources and environmental management at the undergraduate stage and may already have gained initial work experience in these areas.
- Applicants from non-English speaking countries must produce evidence of sufficient knowledge of the English language. This can take the form of one of the following language tests: TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or CAE (Certificate in Advanced English).
Graduates work in various areas of engineering and environmental sciences. They are prepared for assuming executive positions at universities, research institutions, as well as national and international organisations. Graduates may also find employment with engineering consultants involved in the planning and maintenance of water resources facilities and with administrative agencies for water resources management. Globally increasing water resources problems mean that graduates will have a wide range of job opportunities, both now and in the future.
