Program description

Program description

Earn an MSc in Management & Engineering in Water

The MSc in Management and Engineering in Water is a 2-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.

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.

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 waste water or flood and coastal protection and through the social and ecological consequences of water management.
