This provides students with a broad knowledge of the fundamentals of science and engineering in these fields.

Interested candidates should have an affinity for the natural sciences as well as a desire to help address challenges through engineering solutions.

The cooperative Bachelor's degree programme in Hydrology and Water Management is a joint programme of Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, the University of Koblenz and the Federal Institute of Hydrology (BfG), which makes it unique in all of Germany.

Study programme objective

Students are educated with a view to the current and upcoming challenges facing water as a resource, as well as the demands of the job market.
