Water Engineering master (WEM) courses and courses for the European Master in Applied Ecohydrology (MAE)
Hydrological processes are controlled  by topography. Therefore, the understanding of the terrain, which means knowledge of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), is a key point on designing hydrological models. In this course we will learn the basics on GIS, the main data types available and the coordinate systems. On this basis we will learn simple concepts on how to delineate watershed and rivers. We will learn how to perform basic terrain analysis, by calculating the slope and aspect of an area. We will also learn about spatial interpolation of data at a watershed scale.

Research Methods introduce the basic research and analysis tools for Water Engineering. The course includes Higher Mathematics, Programming and Artificial Intelligence Tools. Higher Mathematics comprise Vectors, Matrices, Tensors, and their application in Water Engineering. Statistical Methods are introduced (Regression, Extreme Value Distributions, Test Statistics). R is used as a programming language.

The course in simulation and modeling is part of the master program in civil engineering (Master Bauingenieurwesen) and of the Water Engineering Master of Science (WEM). The course introduces numerical modeling techniques. The modeling of groundwater flow is introduced with open source software (Modflow) and the modeling environment ModelMuse. 

Hydrological Engineering is a master course introducing hydrology and water management at an international level. The course is based on guidelines of WMO, FAO UNESCO-IHP and USDA.

This course introduces the application of artificial tracers for water resources assessment.
