Water Resources

Studies issues like drought, precipitation, and floods, focusing on the flow of water above, on top, or below the earth surface - including how humans influence and use these flows. Research on relevant hydrological, hydraulic and management processes is used to design engineering interventions in water systems.

Sanitary Engineering

Conducts research into the treatment and transport of drinking water, wastewater and industrial water: in other words the urban water cycle. The water quality and the extraction of raw materials, water, and energy from the water cycle is a particular area of focus.
