About the programme

Global issues regarding water availability and flooding require engineers with a firm ground in water related topics. Water management is on the cutting edge of large scale, global processes like climate change and drought and local processes like soil water and river flows.

You will study the (local) aspects of geo-hydrology and you will develop a computational model for a quantitative analysis. You will work on an international water management project.

Combination options

This programme can easily be combined with the 15 ECTS programme ‘Future Cities’. This will result in a nice programme of 30 ECTS credits in total, with a focus on sustainable engineering.

Guest speakers

Guest speakers from the industry of smart mobility, alternative
energy, waste flows, water management, smart cities, etcetera will
share their knowledge and experience to support you in your project
work. You will visit and investigate interesting projects on field trips
in the Netherlands and abroad. 

Entry requirements

Two years of Bachelor's studies in civil or environmental engineering or similar. English at B2 level (IELTS 6.0).
