Welcome to Land and Water Resources Engineering

The Division of Land and Water Resources Engineering focuses on research leading to sustainable and effective utilization of natural resources. Our competence ranges from modelling of biogeochemical and physical processes to treatment techniques for pollution prevention as to environmental resources. Sustainable use of natural resources as well as ecologically sound land-use and urban development are urgent questions in relation to climate change, increasing competition for water, drinking-water supply and land and water pollution.

We want to contribute to fulfil the demands of the society for a sustainable and effective utilization of natural resources. Our scientific base is a thorough scientific understanding combined with technical knowledge where natural resources are studied in a social perspective. Knowledge and methodology for the care and use of natural resources includes all scales from the local to the regional and the global.
