Welcome to the Department of Water Engineering

In the last decades, water resources have been under increased pressure, caused by the gap between the need for water and its availability in terms of both its quality and quantity. This is a particular problem in arid and semiarid regions. Beyond traditional sectors where water is in high demand, this phenomenon is being intensified by rapidly growing populations, increased agricultural irrigation for food production, intensified urbanization and climate change. To overcome this dilemma, a water resources management that follows an integrated and interdisciplinary approach is widely proposed, including sustainable capacity building. This is offered by the Water Engineering Department of the TUB Campus El Gouna with research and teaching. mehr zu:

Flash Flood near El Gouna on 27th October 2016

From 25th - 27th of October 2016 the 2nd International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems (2nd ISFF) was held at TU Berlin Campus El Gouna. More than 50 people from eight countries participated in the symposium. This event was the second in a new series of annual International Symposia on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems. Furthermore, this symposium was supported by the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) and the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GARDI) of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Japan and German Science Center Cairo (DWZ). The First ISFF was held in October 2015 in Kyoto, Japan (see ecohyd.dpri.kyoto-u.ac.jp/en/index/1.html). The Second International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems was complemented by a Training Workshop on Numerical Modelling of Extreme Flash Floods in Arid Region funded by the UNESCO Office Cairo, which took place on 24th of October 2016. The symposium opening session on 25th of October included welcoming words of the TU Berlin Campus El Gouna and the UNESCO office in Cairo as well as messages of the Embassy of Japan to Egypt and of the German Science Center Cairo. Professor Sumi from Kyoto University summarized the objectives of the symposium and the roadmap for the ongoing work regarding Flash Floods in Wadi Systems. During the first two days of the symposium 24 experts and researchers presented their work in seven sessions, such as forecasting, modelling, mitigation and adaption measures, case studies in the Arab region, radar and satellite data, social aspects as well as water harvesting methods. Five presentations showed the outcomes of the Urgent Capacity Development for Managing Natural Disaster Risks of Flash Floods in Egypt, Jordan, Sudan and Yemen during a special UNESCO-session. 17 researchers presented their work on flash flood modelling, hydrological modelling, remote sensing techniques, groundwater recharge and other topics during two poster sessions. Two posters were chosen as best contributions: one  from the Zagazig University in collaboration with the NARSS, Egypt (best poster presentation) and one contribution from the the Kyoto University Japan (second best poster presentation).

Furthermore, Christian Melchert presented the German Science Center and the Egyptian German Water Cluster and offered the possibility to join for all interested participants. On the last symposium day the outcomes, research challenges and future research collaborations were summarized and discussed. An excursion to the flash flood mitigation dams in Safaga was planned for the afternoon, but heavy rain storms caused flash floods and the roads have been closed, so that the excursion to Safaga must be cancelled. This recent event emphasized again the importance of progress in flash flood management and thus the motivation for this symposium. As an alternative to the excursion, a small group went to the field to get some impressions of this recent flood and to take measurements of water level and discharge of the flood coming from Wadi Bili.

In 2017, the Third International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems will take place in Oman. We are looking forward to future collaborations and the outcomes until the next symposium.

The Second International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems


Disaster Risk Reduction and Water Harvesting in the Arab Region

In recent years, flash floods in Wadi systems have caused severe damages, especially in the Arab regions. Human life, infrastructure such as roads and buildings as well as the environment are endangered and have been heavily destroyed. Flash floods are caused by extreme weather conditions, their occurrence is highly random and the associated problems are expected to increase in the near future due to climate change. On the one hand, there is an urgent need for flash flood protection and risk reduction, on the other hand, this rainwater can also be considered as a new resource for water harvesting.

Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, - practitioners, and stakeholders from federal and public organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending the international symposium.

This event is the second in a new series of annual International Symposia on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems. Furthermore this symposium is supported by the Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) and the Global Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (GARDI) of the Disaster Prevention Research Institute (DPRI), Kyoto University, Japan. The First International Symposium on Flash Floods in Wadi Systems held in October 2015 in Kyoto, Japan, was attended by about one hundred scientists, practitioners and stake holders from 11 countries.

Students are invited to submit abstracts for oral presentation or poster. The first ten accepted students have not to pay any fee and get a support of 1000 LE.

Automatized combination of sand and membrane filtration

Mövenpick Resort El Quseer is the first hotel in Egypt to launch the fully biological plant TIA COMPACTmini providing German know-how and technology.

The opening ceremony took place on March 2nd, 2016. The German Embassy in Egypt, the AHK Cairo, the Technical University Berlin El Gouna,  University Rostock, Germany and many other organisations and companies were amongst the speakers and guests.

The plant has been developed by TIA GmbH, Germany, particularly for a decentralized solution of wastewater treatment with highest functionality and modern energy-saving machinery. The main processes are: Biological treatment with sludge stabilization (ARS), 2-step sedimentation (parallel plate), Filtration and Chlorination, Ultra-filtration. The treated water is produced in three different qualities and can be used for irrigation but also to supply the laundry (potable water).

In the following months the partners in this project will study the real costs for operation, maintenance, disposal, control and energy demand for the three qualities of water. The partners target both, transparency and minimization of the costs. The sustainable use of water needs this transparency as it is the main basis for decisions in future applications.

The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development.

November 21st – 26th 2015 a workshop for energy efficiency in desalination took place at the Technische Universität Berlin Campus El Gouna. The DAAD funded event presented the state of the art in research and technology by collecting the results and experienced requirements from Egypt, Jordan, Tunisia and Germany. The series of lectures showed that the combination of desalination and renewable energies already works on smaller scales. Still a high research demand remains to develop innovative technologies like membrane- and low temperature-distillation for drinking water production. Additionally dynamical desalination methods or energy storage systems are needed to buffer the weather dependent energy fluctuations. The contributions of the participants about the current state of the technology are the basis for the development of a lecture module for the students to bring them to the top research for energy efficiency in desalination.
