Specialists in the field of engineering and water management are educated in this field - from
the needs related to water intakes from underground resources, rainwater management, construction of retention reservoirs and accompanying hydrotechnical and water-drainage structures, providing clean water to individual recipients and for economic and agricultural needs, treatment of water flowing from the surface of roads and used economically, through the problem of foundation buildings, construction drainage, sealing landfills and warehouses, to topics related to the development of river valleys, flood protection and protection of natural wetlands and swamps. After completing the relevant internships, graduates may apply for the license to manage construction works and to design without restrictions in the hydrotechnical engineering specialty, as well as to manage construction works and to design to a limited extent in the construction and building specialty.
The first-cycle studies include:
hydrology, meteorology and climatology, soil science and soil hydrology, water and soil chemistry, hydraulics and hydrodynamics, structure mechanics and material strength, soil mechanics, river engineering, reinforced concrete and metal structures, foundations, water drainage engineering.
The second-cycle studies include:
planning of engineering works, hydrotechnical earth structures, water and sewage management in industrial plants, concrete hydrotechnical structures, assessment of the ecological condition of waters, adaptation of water management to climate change, reliability and safety of engineering systems.
Depending on the level of studies, the student may choose one of the study paths:
• water engineering, water management (1st degree);
• water and drainage engineering, water management (2nd degree).
