About

In the Water Technology programme from Wageningen University and Research you will develop new water processes and find technological answers. Science and technology from various disciplines adds value to your career in water research and business.

New water process technology needs to be developed in order to produce clean water from alternative sources like salt (sea) water, waste water or humid air minimizing the use of precious groundwater and to treat waste water and to recover valuable compounds. These challenges require academically-trained experts that can think out of the box and help to find process oriented technological solutions in the near future. 

To train and educate these experts a dedicated joint master’s programme in Water Technology has been set up.

Innovation environment

As a student Water Technology you will be in the centre of the multidisciplinary laboratory of Wetsus, in which 80% of the research will be carried out. Wetsus is situated in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands. By inviting all the researchers to one location, maximal cooperation and creativity is generated. 

The researchers are seconded by the participating EU-universities at Wetsus, but the universities carry scientific responsibility of the projects. In this way, an enormous intellectual and creative power will be focused on water technology and at the same time knowledge capacity will be build up by all the participating universities.
