Broadening horizons is the central theme of our internationalizing efforts in teaching and research.

Broadening horizons stands for:

The field of Water Management and Recycling & Waste Disposal maintains contacts with foreign universities and research institutes with which teacher exchanges, student exchanges and cooperative research projects are realized. Here is a quick view of our international activities.
