The Water Technology programme offered by the University of Twente (UT) is a two year programme offered jointly by Wageningen University, University of Twente and University of Groningen with education being provided at the Wetsus, European Centre of Excellence for sustainable water technology at the WaterCampus in Leeuwarden and you can start in September.
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.
The study domain is becoming more and more relevant due to the urgent need for new technologies to meet the global water problems. Water technology for public drinking water production and sewer water treatment is a very large market. Further, the largest use of fresh water is for irrigation purposes.
In these areas a wide variety of positions is op for graduates, including:
- Consultant or manager at a development project
- Water process engineer
- Researcher at an R&D department
- PhD, starting a scientific career
- Start-up company
