Do you want to become an expert in managing water resources?
Water management comes with many challenges, both economic and ecological, and implies a sound combination of management skills and water engineering know-how. The acquisition, distribution, and management of water resources will become even more challenging in the future than it is today. Therefore it is important that complex water systems meet the levels of service and performance requirements defined by social and environmental demands while minimizing financial, environmental and societal costs. The continued development, operation, and management of these systems require highly trained experts with knowledge and practical skills covering science, engineering and management disciplines.
Water management systems are fundamental to society, for example for the supply of safe drinking water, the treatment of wastewater or flood and coastal protection and through the social and ecological consequences of water management.
The M.Sc. in Management and Engineering in Water is a two-year full-time program targeting young professionals who aspire to fulfill leading positions in organizations engaged in water management. The master program also qualifies to pursue a university career, including doctoral studies.
