Program description

Do you want to understand the dynamics of Earth's water? And want to promote more sustainable use of our water resources? Then the Master's in Hydrology is your programme.

Hydrology is the science that studies the movement of water throughout the hydrological cycle. Hydrology is an applied natural scientific discipline with a strong measure of socio-economic relevance. You will be dealing with issues like: How can we use our water resources in a more sustainable way in view of the growing world population and how do we deal with agricultural and industrial pollutants in our ground and surface water? Hydrology is at the core of Earth System Science, because water and its movements constitute the binding factor between the Earth's global climate and carbon and nutrient cycles. The impact of mankind on the water cycle is enormous nowadays, and grave consequences for the quality and quantity of our water resources are predicted if we continue to use available water in the way we currently do. Water is one of Earth's natural resources that we simply cannot do without. In addition, safe and clean water is becoming increasingly scarce as demands continue to rise all over the world. This means that highly trained hydrologists will always be able to find suitable employment.
