WEWM students are involved in research projects related to:

  • Surface and subsurface hydrology
  • River engineering
  • Open channel flow and pipe flow
  • Hydraulics of water structures
  • Transport of sediments and contaminants
  • Flood protection and revitalization of streams
  • Design, construction, and operation of hydraulic structures (such as weirs, waterways, locks, dams, and hydro-power plants)
  • Soil and groundwater hydraulics
  • Drainage systems and structures
  • Irrigation systems
  • Watershed protection and management
  • Construction of ponds and special reservoirs
  • Landscape design and conservation
  • Erosion processes
  • Protection of surface water and groundwater from pollution
  • Hydrology of urbanized river basins
  • Design and operation of water purification facilities and distribution networks
  • Sewer systems and sewage treatment plants
  • Swimming pools and spa facilities, etc.

In all these areas of research, the emphasis is put on a quantitative and interdisciplinary approach, application and advancement of modern experimental methods, and utilization and development of mathematical models.

In academia - as researchers and university teachers in a broad variety of water-related subjects (in the realm of technical, natural, and agricultural sciences). As highly valued experts in the respective fields of commercially based consulting. As leading professionals in the water industry.
