Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Durner joined the Executive Board on 1 April 2018. He is responsible for all matters relating to academic and student affairs.

Short profile

Since April 2001, Professor Wolfgang Durner has held the Geoecology and Soil Science Chair at TU Braunschweig’s Institute of Geoecology. He heads a research group working on the development and application of technologies to measure and simulate the transport of water and substances in the unsaturated soil zone, to tackle engineering and environmental engineering issues. His work focusses on the identification of effective processes and parameters for the transport of water and substances through porous media.

After studying geoecology at the University of Bayreuth and environmental sciences at the University of East Anglia (Norwich, England), he obtained a diploma and doctoral degree in the field of geoecology/hydrology from the University of Bayreuth. After two and a half years as a research fellow at the Institute of Terrestrial Ecosystems of ETH Zurich, Switzerland, he completed his habilitation and in 1999 was awarded the Venia Legendi for hydrology at the University of Bayreuth. In 2001, he accepted the chair at TU Braunschweig.

For Professor Durner, the major challenges of the future include the growing linguistic, ethnic and social diversity on campus, as well as digitalisation in teaching. He values a good balance between binding rules and freedom in studying and teaching, as well as the reduction of administrative formalities.
