Water Resources Engineering

Programme overview

Having access to clean water is the cornerstone for improving healthcare, increasing food supply, reducing child mortality rates, and enhancing people’s overall quality of life. It has become crucial to develop technologies that can tackle water security challenges and meet the increasing demand. By applying integrated water resources management, surface water and groundwater can be used to cover this demand in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. These are the issues we explore with our students, as well as many other challenges such as wastewater treatment, storm water management, coastal hydraulics, and modelling of hydrological processes. The programme is broad and covers the most important aspects of water resources engineering.

Many of the courses included in the programme contain practical elements, which allow our students to deepen their understanding of the more theoretical components and to develop both professional and academic skills. Our strong links to industry and scientific cooperation projects ensure that our courses maintain a high level of relevance to current issues and developments. 

Special features of the programme 

  • An opportunity to specialise in fields where we have world-leading expertise, such as water and waste water treatment, coastal hydraulics and modelling of hydrological processes.
  • Accessible and engaged teachers who will give you thorough feedback and help you progress throughout your studies.
  • Strong industry links and opportunities to work closely with local and international organisations.
  • A multinational, innovative and interactive learning environment.
