Languages of instruction


Three complementing courses (3 ECTS each) are specifically designed for HR21 doctoral candidates, involving HR21 faculty members as well as external lecturers. Each course provides deeper understanding and competencies in one of the three HR21 research domains of environmental sciences, engineering, and social sciences & humanities. Doctoral candidates have to select courses which are capturing two research domains, which are not covered well within their prior training – hence, two, out of the three courses are mandatory elements of the HR21 curriculum.

Courses topics:

Integrating landscape and aquatic ecology (3 ECTS)
S. Schmutz
Integrating social and economic processes (3 ECTS)
E. Schmidt
Integrating different aspects of engineering sciences (3 ECTS)
C. Hauer
