Darmstadt is located 30 km south of Frankfurt/Main and 60 km north of Heidelberg in the centre of one of Europe’s most industrious and flourishing areas. In 1997, the city’s name was officially changed to Wissenschaftsstadt Darmstadt (Darmstadt – City of Science) in appreciation of the city’s excellent reputation as the home of public and private scientific institutions, research-oriented industries and three institutions of higher education.
The university offers a wide range of subjects. Close cooperation between science and the economy is an indispensable prerequisite for success. For this reason students are encouraged to learn how to put scientific ideas and principles into effect. Research projects are initiated and financed to a large extent by industrial and commercial companies. Around 18 per cent of the approximately 27,000 students are foreigners as are 24 per cent of the master students. The Technical University of Darmstadt is among the most international universities in Germany.
Course focus :
The study programme aims at deepening and diversifying the students’ knowledge, abilities, and competences in Applied Geosciences with a distinct focus on Hydrogeology and Environmental Engineering in the framework of international development cooperation.
The programme includes basic subjects which are elective depending on previous (undergraduate) studies: Geology, Rocks and Minerals; Hydrogeology; and Geo-Information Systems (GIS). Compulsory modules include a field trip to a semiarid region, a six-week period of practical work (scientific training), and a project seminar.
Specialisation modules include Hydrochemistry; Hydrogeochemistry of Contaminants; Soil and Unsaturated Zone; Clay Mineralogy; Aquifer Sedimentology; Hydrogeology of Semiarid Areas; Geophysical Methods; Isotope and Tracer Techniques; Groundwater Modelling; Remote Sensing and Statistics; Hydrogeological Methods; Hydraulic Engineering; Water Management; and Geo-Environmental Engineering.
