Teaching activities of the Junior Research Group

Our teaching is inter- and transdisciplinary and focuses on concepts and methods for a sustainable design, management and operation of urban water systems in developing countries. A continuous integration of research results in our teaching activities is our aim. Participants in our teaching activities are encouraged to contribute to the content and design of these activities, thereby creating a highly motivated teaching and learning environment.


The Junior Research Group carries out at least 6 CP of teaching activities each semester. These teaching activities encompass:


The Junior Research Group established the new and innovative format of “Research Encounters” as a platform for continuous exchange and information on ongoing thesis and project work. Participants are invited to briefly present their work.

The main objectives are:

  • Inform about SEE-URBAN-WATER and thesis/internship opportunities
  • Present project and thesis work --> Opportunity to practice!
  • Give feedback and support to ongoing work --> Get feedback / guidance!
  • Exchange about ongoing project and thesis work --> Connect with others!
  • Coordinate different activities --> Make more out of our work!
  • Create opportunities for ideas and innovations!

Feel free to join our next “Research Encounter” if you want to know more about our work and would like to get involved. Just e-mail your interest to
