What kinds of professions can a hydrologist pursue?


Freiburg is a nationally and internationally renowned university town and offers connections to different companies, government agencies, universities and institutions thanks to its alumni-network. Our graduates work in environmental agencies, in boroughs and in the private sector (engineering and consulting agencies, water supply companies, insurance companies etc.).
They have excellent chances to find a job in an international environment and to work in big organizations specializing in international water science (UNESCO- IHP, WMO, GIZ etc.). A large part of our students develop their theses as part of a project at a research center or at German or international universities.
