Extended field trip

  © IWW

Every year, we organise a field trip lasting several days, together with the Chair for Urban Water Management. The field trip takes place during the Pentecost holiday week and often takes us abroad. Recent destinations include Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.

The objective of this field trip is to bridge the gap between the theoretical knowledge acquired during the classes and the practical work in the field in the different areas of urban water management, hydraulic engineering and water resources management. The trip also enables participants to meet people in the industry and make contacts for future work placements or jobs.

Although the field trip is aimed primarily at students specialising in hydro science, students from other disciplines are also welcome to sign up.
