Mission of the Faculty
Sustainable development of the modern society requires, among others, specialists able to describe, understand and analyze processes occurring in the environment and apply to that engineering knowledge and solutions. The mission of the Faculty is to form engineers who understand the environmental complexity of the contemporary world and analyze it using modern engineering methods and tools.
Mission of the specialization (major)
The specialization program focuses on the scientific analysis of physical, environmental, technical, socio-economic and legal aspects of water resources management. It aims to provide students with an understanding of these aspects and their mutual interactions and with the ability to devise sustainable and technically effective solutions to water resources management. An application of the Information Systems plays an important role in achieving this aim.
Detailed program of studies
The taught program is divided into five thematic blocks: Hydrological Processes, Water Management, Information Systems, Mathematical Modelling, and Governance. The subjects are realized during four semesters:
a) First year: Statistics, Environmental chemistry, Spatial planning, Reliability and safety of engineering systems, Environmental management, Proecological technologies, Environmental monitoring, Technology and management of construction engineering, Environmental information systems, Soil physics and hydrology, Advanced hydrology, Advanced meteorology, Water reservoirs, Land and water development
b) Second Year: Pollution and protection of water, River hydromorphology and restoration, Remote sensing techniques, Surface water modelling, Waste water management, Environmental geotechnics, Ground water flow modelling, Diploma seminar, Optimisation techniques, Economy of water resources, Water law and administration, Integrated water resources management
Graduates of the specialization are expected to find jobs as academically trained professionals or scientists in a wide range of public and private institutions of different levels (local and central administration, water companies, scientific and research institutions, consultancies, NGOs) working in such fields as: water management and consulting, environmental protection, implementation of EU policy, hydrological engineering.
