Land Use and Water Management in Cottbus Study Projects

Study projects are a special feature of this degree programme. We give our students the opportunity to conceive and publish their own small projects, which are usually linked to the university's ongoing research endeavours. Students internalise skills that will help them later on in their careers.

Guided by motto "Research forms reachers" the programme exposes students to our faculty's ongoing research activities, as well as to extramural research facilities that are involved in our  teaching efforts. Taking the Lausitz region as the point of departure, from the point of view of various technical disciplines we examine landscapes such as the Spreewald, agricultural landscapes or post-mining landscapes. Knowledge and skills gained in these projects flow directly into our academic courses. Our aim is to advance scientific knowledge of landscapes and their ecosystems, thereby encouraging our graduates to continue work in this field.
