Objective

Based on the latest scientific knowledge and technological achievements, students will be able to acquire generic competencies such as ability to apply knowledge in practice, to plan and analyse. Moreover, students will acquire specific competencies related to the multidisciplinary study programme - synthesis of hydrotechnics and agrotechnics.

The objective of the study programme is to train students to plan and prepare a (case) study documentation (e.g. on pedological and/or hydrological layers) in the field of hydro-amelioration (drainage and irrigation) and agro-amelioration on agricultural and public land (parks), for monitoring and control of execution of certain hydro-technical activities (amelioration constructions) – embankment building, execution of canals, laying pipelines, building  infrastructure, maintenance of amelioration and agro-amelioration systems, for sustainable land management and protection and conservation of natural resources of soil and water in agroecosystems.

The knowledge acquired during the study enables further education at postgraduate study level or employment in companies associated with hydro-amelioration design, production and distribution of amelioration equipment, agricultural production as well as amelioration construction companies and consultancy services. Successfully completed study programme enables employment at specialized institutes and departments, state and local administration, extension services and provides opportunity for self-employment and management of various jobs in the field of amelioration.
