SEE-URBAN-WATER offers students of the International Master's Program Tropical Hydrogeology and Environmental Engineering (TropHEE) project-related topics as Scientific Training for their master course. During this part of the study program students put special geoscientific methods such as terrain analysis and mapping, chemical analyses and the collection and interpretation of external data to investigate a specific topic into practice.
The Scientific Training allows the student to study a given scientific subject by means of practical laboratory and/or field methods at a high level of independency. It is a step towards disciplinary specialisation, usually in the forerun of the Master Thesis. The student improves his/her methodical knowledge and skills and is enabled to assess and use different technical and/or analytical methods, including data evaluation. The student acquires skills to understand scientific problems in the field of water and environment and to develop approaches to solve them.
