The Water Science and Engineering program explores natural and anthropological influences on the water cycle, from the perspectives of civil engineering, technology and earth sciences.
Introduction to Water Science and Engineering
The Water Science and Engineering master program focuses on the management and development of water resources and water flows and quality in the natural environment, while addressing the multidisciplinary character of human activities dealing with water. They are of direct relevance to sustainable development because they prepare graduates to improve the management of human impact on water resources, design simulation models for various phases of the water cycle, and develop methods of reducing the impact of water-related natural hazards.
Water Science and Engineering Program
The Water Science and Engineering program aims to deepen the knowledge, insight and skills for hydraulic engineering (part of civil engineering), hydro informatics (a technology discipline) and hydrology (an earth system science). Graduates are able to work in professional water sector environments that require academic skills. Graduates who obtain good study results are eligible to undertake a PhD in an appropriate water science or engineering field.
The Water Science and Engineering program has 6 specializations or tracks that can be followed: Agricultural Water Management for Arid and Semi Arid Climates, Agricultural Water Management for Enhanced Land and Water Productivity, Ecohydrology, Flood Risk Management, Hydraulic Engineering - Coastal Engineering and Port Development, Hydraulic Engineering - Land & Water Development, Hydraulic Engineering and River Basin Development, Hydroinformatics - Modelling and Information Systems for Water Management, Hydrology and Water Resources, Integrated Lowland Development and Management Planning.
Water Science and Engineering students can elect one of the following specializations:
- Agricultural Water Management for Arid and Semi-Arid Climates
- Agricultural Management for Enhanced Land and Water Productivity
- Flood Risk Management
- Hydraulic Engineering and River Basin Development
- Hydraulic Engineering - Costal Engineering and Port Development
