Water is the world’s most precious natural resource. This BSc programme provides advanced training to students to develop their understanding of the activities involved in water and wastewater treatment and to work out strategies and devise systems that are crucial to preserving the environment.

The programme aims to develop your thinking ability and with this academic knowledge to create innovative solutions to practical problems. It will provide you the skills that you need to solve problems both alone and in a team structure by the help of the engineering science.

In the 6-semester training course, students learn on subjects that provide the right knowledge for everyday routine tasks in the water industry. Students choose a specialization in the fourth semester to study special subjects. There is an opportunity by professional partners to take part in a professional practice where students get a wealth of professional knowledge and substantial practical experience.
