Die Forschung an der Fakultät bedient primär die Profillinie "Energie, Mobilität und Umwelt" der TU Dresden.

Themen wie Anpassung an den Klimawandel,  regenerative Energiesysteme, Umwelt-Monitoring und Geoinformationstechnologien, Forstwirtschaft, Hydrologie, Limnophysik, Risiko- und Wasserressourcenmanagement, stehen im Fokus.



The three disciplines of forest, geo and hydro sciences exist under one umbrella in the Faculty, which is unique in Germany. Research work and teaching in the Faculty focus on the sustainable development at global, regional and local scale of the human sphere of life, as well as on the monitoring of the system Earth.


Future-oriented interdisciplinary topics of the Faculty address issues from the branches documentation, modelling and risk management in the fields of environment and urban areas, which result from the actual ecological, economic and sociological tendencies such as demographic change, industrialization, environmental pollution, deforestation, climate change, lack of water, desertification and loss of biodiversity. To tackle these problems, the structure of the Faculty, staffed with scientists having engineering, scientific and sociological backgrounds, provides a valuable platform.


Faculty profile lines:

  • Monitoring, modelling and visualization of the system Earth
  • Integrated management of water resources including ecotechnology
  • Water balance and change of physical, chemical and biological components in aquatic systems
  • Forests and trees as tools for global, regional and urban risk management
  • Sustainable development and value added in rural regions: resources and energy from forests
  • Geo-information technologies for the generation of geo-data infrastructure
  • Regional development, regional planning, and environmental management as associated with demographic change and sustainability
