Trends such as sustainable development, stakeholder participation, and economic accountability increasingly complicate the tasks of water managers. This has given rise to a need for water managers with a broad societal focus on water management issues, operating next to and in cooperation with more traditional and technical water managers. The Water Science and Management program, therefore, integrates knowledge from natural and social sciences as a response to emerging needs in the field.
A natural sciences background, the ability to work well as part of a team, and a passion for water management will help you succeed in this program. The Water Science and Management program is an excellent choice for you if you are interested in both the scientific analysis of the water system and the application of water science in integrated and complex societal problems that occur in contemporary water management.
