The earth’s climate is changing rapidly. The main water problems we have to deal with in society are pollution, flooding and shortages. This has major impact for both humans and animals. As a water manager you make sure all life on earth can deal with the effects of climate change on nature, the weather and agriculture.

We offer courses on subjects as ecology, water quality, water technology, resilience, spatial planning and the management of delta areas. Exchange students can choose to do a number of courses from the programme with a total number of 30 ECTS per semester or choose a minor programme.
