Master Water Technology

Visit the Master Open Day on 30 March

Solving global water problems requires a multidisciplinary approach of knowledge and skills.

That is why the Wetsus Institute and three Dutch universities offer a joint degree in Water Technology. The Master's in Water Technology is a two-year programme offered jointly by Wageningen University, the University of Twente and the University of Groningen with education being provided at Wetsus, European Centre of Excellence for sustainable water technology, at the WaterCampus in Leeuwarden.

In the field of water 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. The main added value of the course lies in the multidisciplinary study of biotechnology and separation technology. Such a combined technological approach may offer a solution to global developments, within business and society, and have a worldwide impact on the demand for and use of water.


You can start your studies in September. To apply for this programme, please visit the website of Wageningen University.

Your place of study is in the city of Leeuwarden

The education is given in the city of Leeuwarden (not at the campus in Enschede) at Wetsus, European Centre of Excellence for sustainable water technology, at the WaterCampus. More info about the Wetsus academy
