The program’s goal is to provide excellent management of the entire field of water, including all of its various aspects. The students will be prepared to meet the challenges of their future professional lives in research and practice around the world. The degree course is targeted specifically at students from developing and transitional countries because of the unique problems that these countries face, such as limited drinking water and raw water resources, as well as the devastating effects of hydrologic extremes such as droughts or flood disasters that are linked to heavy erosion, among other things.
International standards are met by the master program, which allows students to pursue and develop careers in government and non-governmental organizations on a national and international scale. The master’s programme will establish the groundwork for participation in development and consultation agencies, as well as for leading the operation of water management systems and contributing to transdisciplinary research activities across the entire area of hydrosciences, among other things. Students from China, Indonesia, Nepal, and Germany were among those who registered for the course when it was offered for the first time in the winter semester 2004/05. Winter semester 2006/07 saw a record number of students enroll in the master’s program from countries as diverse as China, Uganda, Sudan, Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Greece, Spain, Kazakhstan, and Germany. With each passing year, the number of applicants has increased steadily, demonstrating both the course’s high profile and its positive international perception. Typically, the course begins with a group of approximately 20 international participants, who account for 60 to 80 percent of the total number of students enrolled.
About the Scholarship:
Technical University Dresden (TUD) is a public university in Dresden, Germany, near the country’s eastern border with the Czech Republic. It is one of the most prestigious universities in the world. The Royal Saxon Technical School, which was established in 1828, is credited with establishing the university’s roots. Today, TUD is a contemporary, multifunctional institution that is one of the largest technical universities in Germany and one of the most prestigious in the world. The institution, which operates under the motto Wissen schafft Brücken – ‘Knowledge builds bridges,’ has 14 faculties organized into five main schools. Over 100 different disciplines are represented, ranging from natural and engineering sciences to the humanities, social sciences, and medical sciences, among others. The buildings on the main campus of the university, which is located immediately south of Dresden’s city center, were constructed over three distinct periods. The university’s first buildings were planned by Martin Dülfer, and Hermann Glöckner made significant contributions to its repair after Dresden was destroyed by Allied bombing strikes during World War II. A decade after the country’s reunification in 1990, the university’s modern-era buildings were constructed on its grounds. Tud offers 125 degree programs across 14 faculties in a diverse range of subjects with a particular emphasis on Biomedicine, Bioengineering, Materials Sciences, Information Technology, Microelectronics, Energy and the Environment. TUD is comprised of 14 faculties and offers 125 degree programs in a diverse range of subjects. The university is one of eleven institutions in the country to be designated as a ‘University of Excellence’ by the German Universities Excellence Initiative, which recognizes the best of the best in higher education. It is also a member of TU9, which is an association of nine of Germany’s most prestigious technological institutions. Approximately 40 percent of the 36,000 students who attend TUD are from the Saxony region (of which Dresden is the capital), approximately 20 percent are from other former East German federal states, and approximately 13 percent are from other parts of the world, primarily from Europe and Asia. The remaining students are from the former West German federal states that were formerly part of Germany. Dresden itself, which was completely rebuilt following World War II, is often regarded as one of Germany’s most attractive cities. In the post-war years, many of the city’s ancient buildings were restored to its former splendour, earning it the nickname “Jewel Box” because of its baroque and rococo architecture.
