Friends association of the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management at RWTH Aachen

The Friends association of the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management at RWTH Aachen is a non-profit-making, scientific organisation. Its mission is to support the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management (IWW) in fulfilling its wide range of teaching and research tasks. The association promotes the development of the next generation of highly-qualified engineers, supports research and development work and contributes financially towards colloquia, symposia, trips, lectures and field trips.
