Research Facility for Subsurface Remediation (VEGAS)

We are delighted to see how students improve over time and cherish teaching. We also offer and supervise interesting topics for BSc and Msc theses. We offer thesis topics in our chemistry lab, in performing contaminant and heat transport experiments in the lab and in the field, and in mathematical modelling. We value education and teach courses in Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering, Water Resources Engineering and Management as well as in the “Fortbildungsverbund Boden und Altlasten Baden-Württemberg ”

summer semester

Field Course Hydrogeology
lecturer: Claus Haslauer, Simon Kleinknecht, Jochen Seidel and Oliver Trötschler
more information:c@mpus, c@mpus(WAREM)

VEGAS maintains a hydrogeological testing site, near the town of Horkheim close to the river Neckar. This site is well equipped for hydrogeologic field tests, such as pumping tests, slug tests, tracer tests, borehole dilution tests and others. The key component of the course is a 2-day visit at the field site during which students learn hands-on hydrogeologic testing procedures. The video below gives an impression of the activities during the summer term 2022 at the Horkheim site.

Offered BSc./MSc. theses

VEGAS offers a variety of different bachelor / master theses for the study programs Environmental Engineering, Civil Engineering, WAREM and WASTE. A selection is shown in the following list. Beyond that, we often have exciting new tasks on the development of remediation technologies on different scales, geothermal energy, measurement technology and exploration as well as heterogeneity and multivariate statistics. Just contact  Simon Kleinknecht, Claus Haslauer, or Tobias Junginger. if you are interested!
