Master hydrogeology and transfers

University of Poitiers

The Master Hydrogeology and Transfers of the University of Poitiers aims to train high-level hydrogeologists able to apprehend the major environmental problems of groundwater resources management both quantitatively (optimization of the implementation of drilling, determination of the volumes that can be sampled) than qualitative (physicochemical quality of water, pollution problem, ...).

Real practical field work and a competent teaching team

Hydrogeological Experimental Site of the University of Poitiers

HEU is a unique research and training infrastructure in Europe. Thirty holes of more than 120m deep are located on land belonging to the University of Poitiers. These boreholes intercept an aquifer (hydrogeological reservoir) limestone fractured and karstified.

The modules of the Master 2

Some of the lessons are taught in English. The aim is to get students to overcome their apprehension about the use of the English language through regular use of the language in class. From this point of view, it is less the "literary" quality of the English used that is aimed at than its communicative effectiveness.
