About the Department of Water, Environment, Construction and Safety
The Department of Water, Environment, Construction and Safety is one of the few in Germany to offer water and environmental management courses as well as the subjects "Civil Engineering" and "Safety and Security" in both Bachelor's and Master's programmes, thus embodying a unique degree of interdisciplinarity in teaching and research.
Our Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes are almost unique in the German university landscape in their practical orientation. The uniqueness results from the strong natural science and engineering orientation of the undergraduate degree programmes and the research orientation in Master's degree programmes such as Engineering Ecology. Furthermore, our degree programmes in civil engineering and safety and security are currently unique in Saxony-Anhalt. These core features of our degree programmes ensure a clear profile.
