The TWM programme will enable graduates to solve contemporary and future water resource management problems such as flood protection, water quality and water scarcity. Against the background of climate change and its global impact on people and economies, the sustainable handling and management of water is of paramount importance. Reflecting today's complex management problems, the TWM study programme is multidisciplinary, too. Students are provided with knowledge, skills and techniques from ecological, socio-economic, planning and engineering disciplines in order to put effective water management into practice. TWM is an international study programme jointly provided by Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany.
