The Department of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology and the Institute of Hydrogeology are involved in the teachings of the Bachelor/Master studies of Applied Geosciences and Management of Georessources. Additionally special classes are given to students of Civil Engineering, Waste Management Engineering, Business Administration and Engineering, Mining Engineering and Applied Geographic. Beside the basic courses in Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology the Department also offers classes in subjects such as tunnelling, groundwater exploration and remediation techniques for contaminated sites. The Department has its own lecture room in which most of the classes are taking place. The well equipped GIS-Laboratory is used for the practical instruction in computer based processing of geoinformations and numerical modelling. Teaching contents are consolidated by field-trips and field-practice.
