Learn to solve global water problems with a multidisciplinary approach.
In the field of water (process) technology, breakthrough technological developments are required. Not only to enable the export ambitions of the water sector but also to solve global threats and challenges in society. Think, for example, of challenges related to water scarcity, water pollution, and sustainable water management. If you are eager to develop innovations in water treatment processes and contribute to water technology solutions for the sustainable use of water, the Master’s in Water Technology is right for you.
This Master’s is a joint degree, offered by the University of Twente, Wageningen University and the University of Groningen, in collaboration with the Wetsus Institute in Leeuwarden, the European Centre of Excellence for sustainable water technology.
This two-year, English-taught Master’s, that is offered in Leeuwarden, will help you to solve global water problems from a multidisciplinary perspective. You will combine knowledge of e.g. microbiology, chemistry, process engineering, electrochemistry, physics, and membrane science. From wastewater treatment and reuse, and sensoring micro/nanopollutants to sustainable water supply, energy production and finding new water sources: there is a broad range of research areas you could come across.
