  • Unifies the ecological and economical approaches to natural water resources
  • Develops sustainable waste water treatment systems and provide high-level drinking water
  • Consults municipal water companies in developing investment strategies to improve the water management systems
  • Combines the technical demands of an urban water supply with the preservation of ecological systems
  • Consults the government in water conservation strategies and sustainable water cycle management

... to make a difference. Is this you?

Obtaining, distributing and managing the vulnerable resource water will play an even bigger role in the future than it does today. Reconciling ecology and economy in the water management is a challenging task where management skills and water engineering know-how is indispensable. Therefore it is important that the complex water systems meet the levels of service and performance requirements defined by increasingly social and environmental demands, whilst minimizing financial, environmental and social costs. The continued development, operation and management of these systems requires highly trained experts with knowledge and practical skills that covers science, engineering and management disciplines.

The programme Master of Science in Management and Engineering of Water Resources combines the wide range of applied science, engineering and management disciplines represented in water management.

The main objective of the course is to offer further expertise in the water management sector by providing a balance of technical, theoretical and practical knowledge in fields like Environmental Analysis, Water Supply, Pipe Construction, Operation and Maintenance, Wastewater Treatment, Groundwater Management, Water Governance, Water and Energy, Flood and Coast Protection, Change Management (climate, demographic, urbanization).
