The international Master Programme Hydrogeology and Environmental Geoscience (HEG) at the University of Göttingen conveys modern know-how in the fields of integrated water resources management, contaminant transport in the subsurface and groundwater in fractured systems. Special attention is given to practical and quantitative approaches: e.g. saltwater intrusion; usage of alternative water resources (artificial recharge); environmental monitoring and remediation; water pollution control; contaminant treatment technologies; systems, surface and groundwater modelling. Emphasis is placed on water scarcity problems in semi-arid regions and developing countries.
The tuition programme is presented by an international experienced and interdisciplinary team of lecturers from universities, private companies, research institutes and governmental institutions. Tuition includes lectures, field/laboratory work and case studies.
The course is composed of obligatory modules, 6 basic (46 credits) followed by 6 advanced (44 credits). The course is divided into 3 semester to complete the master thesis under supervision. The topic of the master thesis can either be consultancy or research oriented. The assessment of the course is in accordance with European Credit Transfer System. Credit points, assessed by examination or course work, will be awarded for each module.
Basic modules: - General Tools (9 credits)
- Geology (6 credits)
- Hydrology (7 credits)
- Hydrogeology I (6 credits)
- Hydrogeology II (6 credits)
- Geophysics (4 credits)
- Hydro(geo)chemistry (8 credits)
Advanced modules: - Systems Modeling (5 credits)
- Groundwater Modeling (6 credits)
- Geothermal Energy (7 credits)
- Water Pollution Control and Environment (8 credits)
- Environmental Monitoring and Remediation (7 credits)
- Integrated Water Resources Management (11 credits)
The course aim is to prepare its participants for professional work as hydrogeologists, water resources or environmental experts, in research, consulting or administration in the public or private sector.
Admission conditions and selection procedure
Admission to the course is restricted. Applicants should have successfully graduated as a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in geology, chemistry, engineering, or other related degrees. Adequate knowledge of the English language must be certified by an internationally accepted test, if the mother language of the applicant is not English (e.g. Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English, IELTS, TOEFL, CEF).
Applicants are requested to send a cover letter to the Secretary Dean of Students, together with the application, requesting the admission to the Master Programme. The cover letter is an informal document; a specific form is not required. It is aimed to close the submission of applications before APRIL 30. Nevertheless, later applications until JULY 15 are possible, and will be considered in the case that all available places have not been filled.
You are normally required to take an English Proficiency Test.
