The growing global socio-political requirements for solutions concerning water supply and environmental investments in the water sector have increased the demand for well-qualified and internationally oriented engineers. WAREM is particularly suited to satisfy and answer these demands by covering the following main areas:
- Groundwater Management and Geohydrology
- Hydraulic Engineering and River Basin Management
- Sanitary Engineering and Water Quality Management
The program profits from the University of Stuttgart‘s excellent research facilities in the water sector, such as the worldwide largest in-situ groundwater remediation installation (VEGAS), Europe’s largest prototype research waste water treatment plant (LFKW), and a laboratory hall for physical modeling in Hydraulic Engineering. The program includes many excursions throughout Europe to visit hydropower stations, locks, sewage treatment plants and water supply systems.

How is the program structured?
WAREM is a consecutive program. It comprises 120 ECTS which are generally obtained within three in-class semesters and a fourth semester dedicated to the Master’s Thesis (30 ECTS). The modules typically have a 6 ECTS value, however the compulsory seminar "Requirements of Professional life and Engineering in Practice" is worth 3 ECTS, as are two interdisciplinary key qualifications or learning German to Level A 2.1. "Short Courses" are offered as block courses worth 3 ECTS each.
After having completed the Master’s Program it is possible to deepen the acquired knowledge in the PhD program ENWAT (Environmental Water).
