This specialization belongs to the master's programme Civil Engineering Management.
This specialization focuses on the behaviour and management of water systems (e.g. rivers, coastal zones and seas) and the physical and socio-economic aspects of water management.
The specialization in Water Engineering and Management focuses on the behaviour and management of water systems (e.g. rivers, coastal zones and seas) and on the physical and socio-economic aspects of water management. You will become familiar with a variety of tools for analysing long-term behaviour of water systems and for evaluating the impact of human interventions on these systems. In addition, the role of models and uncertainty in decision-making processes and sustainable aspects of water management are important topics. Within this specialization two profiles have been defined:
- Integrated Water Management, with courses such as Hydrology, Design Project Water, Tools for Water Policy Analysis, Integrated Water Management and Water Footprint Assessment.
- River and Coastal Engineering, with courses such as Mathematical physics of water systems, Water Systems, River Dynamics, Marine Dynamics and Morphology.
Upon completion of the Water Engineering & Management specialization you may be considered for admission to the Water programme at the Twente Graduate School or the PDEng programme in Civil Engineering. The PDEng is a two-year postgraduate programme which involves coursework and culminates in a design project. As a trainee, you will be employed by the University of Twente or you will be placed at a company.
