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.
