Programme objectives

The programme objective is to acquire expertise in the field of water management and the capability to acquire further knowledge independently with the aid of scientific methods. A further objective is to master the varied demands of professional life in applied practice, research or teaching, and to apply the rules of engineering confidently in order to deal effectively with the frequently changing tasks that will arise later in the working world.

Our water bodies are used for water supply, energy generation, irrigation, navigation, as discharge systems for purified effluents as well as for purposes of leisure and recreation. Even on a regional level, global water scarcity obliges us to manage the resource both in terms of quantity and quality. In areas of intense land use, technological, ecological and process-based demands emerge which have economic consequences and require a legal framework. An integrated approach from the viewpoints of ecological, technological, process engineering and structural aspects gives rise to new results and findings. Natural and technically optimised processes and procedures dominate the structural design and, in relation to the residues generated, bring about a closer interdependency with closed-cycle management.

Admission requirements

A higher education entrance qualification is a general prerequisite for admittance to the programme of study. International applicants must provide proof of educational qualifications that permit study in Germany (school-leaving certificate, certificate of university attendance).

The DAAD database on admission requirements allows international students to check whether they meet the requirements for the degree programme of their choice in Germany.

The language of instruction is German. Foreign applicants must prove they have adequate knowledge of German. Evidence of the necessary German language skills can be provided in the form of:

  • Goethe Certificate C1
  • DSD II
  • DSH I
  • TestDaF (minimun level 3 in the examination modules)
  • TELC Deutsch C1 Hochschule
  • ÖSD C1

Applicants who are unable to fulfil the specified admission requirements may contact a preparatory college (‘Studienkolleg’). These specifically prepare foreign applicants for a course of study in Germany. Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences does not have its own preparatory college. The state-run preparatory college responsible for our institution is located at Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Köthen.
An overview of all preparatory colleges in Germany can be found here.
In Magdeburg you can find a private preparatory college: Europäisches Studienkolleg der Wirtschaft (ESKW)
