Description: University of Cologne as one of the oldest and largest universities in Germany is among the country’s leading research institutions. As a traditional full university, UoC covers a broad spectrum of disciplines, organized in six faculties: a) management, economics and social sciences, b) law, c) medicine, d) arts and humanities, e) mathematics and natural sciences, as well as f) human sciences. We have developed internationally recognized research profiles. The Geography faculty has a particular strong research record, ranking consistently either first or second place in the research rankings of the Germany Research Foundation (DFG). A strong focus of the research in the Geography department is on man and environment interactions particularly also in the context of climate change and urban development. The department maintains a strong and active international research network particularly in the fields of remote sensing, environmental modelling, hydrology and urban geography.
