Hydraulic Engineering (admission is closed)

The aim of the Programme is to train highly qualified engineering specialists capable of conducting scientific or applied research, evaluating water structures and their impact on the environment using advanced scientific methods, integrating knowledge of different fields to solve theoretical and practical water management problems, analyse and model environmental changes, engineering phenomena and processes using the latest information technologies. Graduates of this study programme are professionals who are welcome in the labour market, helping to find solutions to hydraulic engineering challenges and promoting progress in hydraulic engineering.

Competencies acquired 

  • To apply water regime calculation and forecasting methods in the design of hydraulic structures, organizing the construction and operation of these structures, evaluate theoretical and practical innovations and respond to changing conditions. 
  • To design modern water management structures and engineering systems taking into account long-term environmental impact forecasts, to provide project proposals on water quality improvement and rational use. 
  • To identify and solve water engineering problems, understand the applied methods and methodologies and their limitations, to choose engineering equipment and software, know the principles of organization of engineering activities, use modern technologies that conserve land and water resources. 

Career opportunities  

Graduates can expect project, expert, consultancy and management work: in companies involved in the management, maintenance and administration of construction of water management systems and hydraulic structures; in companies involved in water management and environmental protection; scientific and pedagogical work in scientific and educational institutions of water engineering. Studies can be continued in the doctoral programme in the field of technological sciences.
