The Institute of hydrology and meteorology combines the scientific foundations of the hydro Sciences, atmosphere and hydrosphere, develops and deploys them in interdisciplinary projects for engineering applications. This is expressed in diverse cooperation E.g. in the CAWR and UNU Flores. This research provides a basis for the doctrine, such as for the master hydrology and the international master in hydro-science and engineering.
Research and teaching remain equal columns in the self-understanding of the Institute and its staff in accordance with the Mission of the University.
