Emil Krüger graduated as a civil engineer from the Technical University of Berlin in 1880, after having initiated studies at Dresden Technical University. He was appointed Regierungs-Baumeister in 1885 and was in charge of river engineering works in Ratibor, Steinau and Torgau along Oder River. After land improvement works in Hannover, Krüger was appointed head of melioration works for the Lüneburg County in the vicinity of Hamburg. From 1906 to 1912 Krüger headed the Bromberg melioration department and there was in parallel also involved in the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Institut of Agriculture. Krüger was appointed in 1913 professor of agricultural engineering at the Berlin Agricultural University. He was awarded the Honorary Doctorate from the Technical University of Breslau, today's Wrocł aw, in 1923, the year he retired to move back to Hannover, where he passed away shortly later.

The agricultural design of the large German plains was only possible once the land was improved, and swamps had been drained. Krüger was an early promoter of agricultural engineering and is remembered particularly for his detailed works on irrigation shortly before World War I. He systematically investigated the optimum means to irrigate land and therefore was also described as the "father of field irrigation". Krüger analyzed various nozzle types for irrigation and proposed an optimum design in terms of water need and water distribution on an agricultural surface. He was involved in the German journal Der Kulturtechniker and supported students in this relatively young technique. Krüger has written the successful 1921 book on agricultural engineering.
