Harbour Planning and Maritime Waterways Engineering
The students know the principles for the building and operation of ports, port facilities and maritime waterways. For this purpose, block courses with the lecturer Dipl.-Ing. Johannes Augustin (INROS LACKNER) take place, which are supplemented by an excursion to Hamburg to the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA) that is guided by Daniel Jahn. Due to the extensive experience in construction practice by the lecturers and the excursion to Germany's strongest port in terms of turnover, the students are taught how to optimally solve different, complex problems in practice.
Management and operation of sea ports and harbours
Problems and perspectives related to specific harbour locations
Design of container terminals
Maritime Waterways Engineering
In the course "Maritime Waterways Engineering" teaches a systemic understanding of waterways. The physical interrelations of interventions in the waterways are investigated with the aid of hydraulic system analysis in order to enable an evaluation of river engineering measures. In particular, the problems of estuaries in Lower Saxony are dealt with and possible river engineering measures and concepts are discussed together with the students. For the construction and operation of maritime waterways, the interactions between seagoing vessels and maritime waterways will be presented and the necessary maintenance will be related to navigability.
