Specific admission requirements

The MSc programme Water Technology is a joint degree programme and combines two main disciplines: Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology.

Of course, it is also possible to be admitted with a different degree. The basic intention is to admit students who are expected to be able to take their degree in the nominal study time of two years. The presence, level and result of relevant courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry will be judged. Furthermore, some affinity with the field of water (technology) is required. 

The programme Water Technology raises different requirements with regard to the minimum level for proficiency in English.

  • IELTS overall grade 6.0 (with a minimum sub-score of 6.0 for speaking)
