Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology
Course of studies
Duration of study (semesters)4
Description of course of studiesEngineering geology as a field of geotechnical engineering allegorises the link between natural scientific areas of geosciences and engineering sciences. Engineering geologists are consigned to explore and investigate the underground, hence develop derived underground models as well as to determine rock properties. They design and complete measures in the fields of traffic route engineering, tunnel construction, natural resources and mitigation of natural hazards. Hydrogeology deals with the Earth’s water cycle. Therefore Hydrogeology provides a basis for these topics: drinking water supply, ground water and soil contamination as well as geothermal energy generation.

Application and admission
Application period for winter semester: 01.03. - 31.05.
Application period for summer semester: 01.11. – 15.01.
Our online application portal will create a checklist with documents you have to hand in. The checklist shows which documents you need for admission and which for enrollment.
You must submit the signed application form and all documents you need for admission before the application deadline, i.e. before 31.05. for winter semester and before 15.01. for summer semester.
You must submit all documents you need for enrollment before 15.09. for winter semester or before 15.03. for summer semester. If individual documents for enrollment are not available at that date, you can hand them in up to five weeks after the start of the lecture period. However, we recommend that you submit all required documents well before the semester begins, as you will not be enrolled until all documents have been received.
Please check your TUMonline account regularly to see if we have any questions concerning your documents or if you have to amend one or more documents.
