University of Miskolc

University of Miskolc Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is one of the oldest higher educational institutions in the mining discipline, and its history dates back to 1735. The university is continuously working on the industry driven renewal of its knowledge base, educational programs and research foci. As the conventional technical disciplines have been reshaped, University of Miskolc repositioned water management and hydrogeology as one of the main focus areas to stay consistent with the present global challenges.  

University of Miskolc offers water-related courses in English on different academic levels:

MSc in Hydrogeology Engineering

The aim of the program is to train highly qualified hydrogeological engineers who are competent in dealing with hydrogeological, water management and environmental issues related to surface and underground water resources, with special emphasis on groundwater research and exploitation, protection of water quality and water resources, and groundwater remediation challenges. The graduates of the program are capable of solving problems of hydrogeological and geotechnical challenges encountered during the design and construction of various engineering structures. The program also addresses technical and hydrogeological aspects of geothermal energy exploitation and legal issues related to water management.

PhD Program

University of Miskolc welcomes graduates with outstanding results to continue their studies in the Mikoviny Sámuel Doctoral School of Earth Sciences. The objective of the program is to provide advanced scientific tools for researchers in Earth sciences and to publish their achievements. Full-time, part-time, or independent study programs are available for students.

The University of Miskolc Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering is among the most successful Hungarian actors of the Horizon2020 research programs. Out of its presently running 5 funded programs, two are directly linked to hydrogeology and geothermal energy exploitation (KINDRA, CHPM2030). The educational and research staff of the faculty are responsible for the coordination of two RIA programs with multiple partnerships and are open to collaboration within the framework of other research and educational programs and professional missions.
