Such a large sector requires professionals specialized in water resources, with a multidisciplinary approach that facilitates its insertion in a wide range of companies and entities that cover the different sectors of activity. Based on these premises, the Master in Science and Technology of Water Resources has been designed that incorporates the particularities of the sector and an innovative method of problem-based learning.

Training objectives

The objective of the master's degree in science and technology of water resources is to train professionals with a multidisciplinary profile that allows them to face current and future challenges in the management of water resources, facilitating their incorporation into the labor market and the world of research (in public or private centers), and developing its activity in aspects directly or indirectly related to water, with a greater scientific or engineering emphasis depending on the itinerary chosen.

It also aims to equip students with tools and skills that allow them to face complex problems with a critical analysis of existing information, manage uncertainty, make decisions (individually and as a team) and adapt to constant paradigm changes. from the field of science and technology of water resources. Communication, responsibility, and the search and use of reliable sources of knowledge are worked through the teaching methodology of problem-based learning.
