Course content

The only degree programme of its kind in Central Europe: In the English language master's programme Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering at TU Graz, you profit from a combination of two disciplines - geotechnical engineering and hydraulic engineering. You learn in a practical manner, participating in practice sessions in the laboratory and on-site, and taking part in field trips. For example, you pilot hydraulic projects in Austria’s largest water laboratory.

Georg M. Ausweger, master's degree student in Geotechnical and Hydraulic Engineering:

The tasks in our area are unique - in many different respects. To be able to solve them, you need solid specialist knowledge and the ability to apply an innovative approach. These fundamental aspects are taught well in the degree programme, and can even be applied by students during their internships, made possible by the teachers’ good connections to the industry.


Students acquire a solid knowledge of geology, soil mechanics, foundation engineering, rock mechanics, tunnelling, hydraulics and structural hydraulic engineering.

Core areas

  • Students design, assess, monitor and create
  • foundations,
  • supporting structures,
  • natural and artificial scarps and slopes,
  • tunnels and underground structures,
  • dams and hydro power plants
  • They quantify soil, rock and hydraulic qualities.
  • They focus on the material behaviour of geomaterials.
  • They learn about catastrophe management and how to deal with natural hazards.

Students choose from one of the following specialisations:

  • Hydraulic engineering and water management
  • Soil mechanics and foundation engineering
  • Rock mechanics and tunnelling

For the individual courses, please see the semester plan.
