The field trip 2017 of the IWW and ISA within Germany and Austria took place from June 5th to 10th, 2017 and was jointly organized by both chairs.

Different companies and projects were presented to the participating students. The knowledge taught in the courses from the different areas of urban water management, hydraulic engineering and water management was presented in a descriptive way to the students using practical experience.
