MA in Ecohydrology


Magister in Environmental Protection - specialisation Ecohydrology


4 semesters (2 academic years)



ECTS points



MA in Ecohydrology aims to create highly specialized professionals in the area of Ecohydrology (EH). Ecohydrology (EH) is a sub-discipline of hydrology that seeks to understand the ecological processes controlled by the hydrological cycle.


  • describes the link between ecology and hydrology and applies it as a management tool for protection and sustainable use of the natural environment, in context of modern methods and ecohydrological biotechnologies, and with consideration of current environmental policy,
  • determines the ecological processes that support the resilience of aquatic ecosystems and plans how to harmonize them with existing engineering infrastructures at the river basin scale, to achieve sustainable aquatic ecosystems use and to reverse the processes of human caused degradation,
  • uses an holistic perspective of freshwater ecosystems functioning, under natural and anthropogenic pressures, and by this regulates ecological processes based on understanding of the "water - biota interactions", from a molecular (e.g., microbial loop) to an ecosystem (biomanipulation), and than to a landscape scales (reforestation, creation of land/water ecotonal buffer zones),
  • estimates the social and economic values of aquatic ecosystems, and develops the research and applications required to support and implement conservation and adaptation measures for the sustainable management of aquatic environments,
  • applies advanced tools in the planning, conception and design phases of ecohydrological projects,
  • uses communication and research skills for integrated team work, decision supporting systems for community policy, and for creation the interface between researchers, stakeholders and decision makers.
