Students learn to develop, propagate and apply sustainable innovations and optimizations, and create new insights within the broader framework of the growing scarcity of raw materials (mainly water), energy and associated pollution.
Wageningen University and Research , University Twente and University of Groningen offer this full master’s programme Water Technology as a joint degree. It links to collaborate research activities, which are consolidated in their participation together with the Research Institute Water Technology, Wetsus.
The Wetsus Academy coordinates the programme, which is given entirely in Leeuwarden at the Wetsus institute. Students study in the most suited academic context to become design-oriented researchers and professionals in water technology. The Water Technology degree from Wageningen University and Research knows a clear and very strong link with the professional field of science and research. Students learn in an inspiring environment at the WaterCampus in Leeuwarden, close to their future work field.
Inspiring learning environment
Students of this programme become member of the scientific and professional network of the Research Institute Wetsus. Networking possibilities at the international WaterCampus enable students to interact with other major players in water technology and to get familiar with real-world cases and applications.
Nearly all members of the teaching staff are actively involved in the Wetsus research programme in order to ensure the connection with new developments and thus the quality and high level of the educational programme. Students can select a thesis topic from a large number of multidisciplinary research projects and get to know companies that participate in the Wetsus research programme.
