Help solve the world's water challenges

Understand the hydrological system and its societal impacts

How can we make sure there’s enough water available for everyone? Can we ensure water quality for agriculture, biodiversity and drinking water? And how can we minimise the impact of extreme flood events in dense urban areas? 

If you’re looking to dive deeper into the complex interactions between hydrological processes and their relationship with society, climate and vegetation, then this is the Master’s programme for you. 

You’ll come away with the skills, including fieldwork and modelling skills, to understand the processes. And you’ll develop solutions to address challenges of water quantity, quality and associated risks, such as floods and droughts.


Course Director: Philip Ward
Course coordinators: Kim Naudts and Ype vander Velde

You’ll look at the issues from an interdisciplinary perspective – balancing both hydrological processes and societal interactions. And of course you’ll be using real world examples. You’ll conduct your research at permanent hydrological field sites in Luxembourg, Kenya and Siberia. And, in your second year, you’ll be able to choose your own focus area by selecting elective courses.
