Urban Water Engineering and Management provides students with the latest insights into water and wastewater services within the context of the urban water cycle, covering both technical and management aspects.
The world is increasingly urbanised with 50% of the world’s population living in urban areas. By 2030 in Asia 54% will live in cities compared to 39% in 2005. This enormous growth of urban areas poses several challenges, such as delivery of essential water and sanitation services and the management of the urban water cycle. This is also recognised by the Millennium Development Goals and Targets established at the UN Millennium Summit in 2000. These challenges are further complicated due to climate change, and it is foreseen that coping with them requires a substantial increase of highly trained and qualified human resources.
The Urban Water Engineering and Management program offers students the possibility to study at two renowned institutes for international postgraduate education: AIT and UNESCO-IHE. The coursework part of the program starts at AIT in Bangkok in August, where students follow a number of courses until the second half of December. In early January, they move to Delft where they join students in UNESCO-IHE’s Municipal Water and Infrastructure program for five modules and the international field trip. Depending on their thesis topic, students then either move back to Bangkok or remain in Delft for their additional coursework and individual thesis research work.
