At the beginning, the institute covered the subjects of hydraulic engineering, hydromechanics, hydraulics and hydrology. In the early 2000s, hydromechanics moved to mechanical engineering. In the context, the two areas “Hydraulic Engineering and Hydraulics” and “Hydrology and Water Resources Management” formed independent disciplines, which today operate under the umbrella of the joint Institute of Hydraulic and Water Resources Engineering.
Today, the institute is headed by Prof. Boris Lehmann as chair in the Department of Hydraulic Engineering and Hydraulics and by Prof. Britta Schmalz, who is head of the Department of Engineering Hydrology and Water Resources Management.
The course “Wasserbau, Wasserwirtschaft und Hydraulik” has now been organized together for many years and will be replaced by “Grundlagen der Rohr- und Gerinnehydraulik” and “Grundlagen der Hydrologie” with the new examination regulations of 2021.
The “Verein zur Förderung des Instituts für Wasserbau und Wasserwirtschaft der Technischen Universität Darmstadt e.V.” supports the IWW in research and teaching.
