The aim of this program is to train highly qualified engineers who are competent in dealing with geological and environmental issues concerning surface and subsurface waters, the protection of quantity and quality of groundwater resources, and the remediation of contaminated sites. The main focus of education is placed on groundwater resources, which play more and more significant role in drinking water supply, mineral and medicinal water utilization and geothermal energy production. Flow and transport modeling, groundwater management and well hydraulics are also very strong parts of this internationally acknowledged MSc program.  The graduates will be capable of solving problems related to the subsurface constructions of various engineering structures (buildings, tunnels, railways, underground transport systems, reservoirs, earthworks, roads, surface mines, underground mines, etc.). The graduates will also be capable of carrying out and coordinating tasks related to research and development in their academic fields, as well as to continue their studies at doctoral level.
