The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is offering scholarships for the Master Program Hydro Science & Engineering at TU Dresden in 2022.
The program aims for an excellent handling of the entire field of water with its various aspects. The students will be enabled to cope with future professional demands within research and practice worldwide. The degree course especially addresses students from developing and transitional countries due to the specific problems occurring there, i.e. limited drinking water and raw water resources as well as the devastating impacts of hydrologic extremes like droughts or flood disasters connected with heavy erosions.
The master program meets international standards required to pursue and develop careers within national and international administrations and organisations. The master course will lay the basics for engagement in development and consultation agencies, to head the operation of water management systems and to contribute to transdisciplinary research tasks within the entire field of hydro sciences.
When the course started for the first time, in winter semester 2004/05, students from China, Indonesia, Nepal and Germany registered. In winter semester 2006/07 students from China, Uganda, Sudan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Greece, Spain, Kazakhstan and Germany enrolled for the master course. Over the years the number of applicants has constantly grown up to 80 applicants per year showing both the high profile and the international perception of the course. Usually the course starts with a number of about 20 international participants representing some 60 to 80% of all attending students.
