Integration of all aspects of flood risk is the cornerstone of the Flood Risk Master. The first semester (in Germany) offers a basic grounding to all students. This is followed by a semester at IHE Delft introducing the hydroinformatics and modelling components and a semester in Spain and Slovenia following more specialised modules. The final semester is given over to a research thesis.

The programme starts at the TU in Dresden, where students take either non-engineering or engineering subjects to complement their background and build a solid foundation for everyone.
At IHE Delft the students join the Hydroinformatics programme, focussing on different types of modelling. On real case studies students learn how to apply and integrate various types of modelling and decision support systems. An international fieldtrip is offered as well.
During the third semester the students take more specialised modules, such as Debris Flow and Coastal Flooding (including fieldtrips) in Barcelona.
The last part of the third semester is conducted at University of Ljubljana where the students study spatial planning and socio-economic and institutional frameworks for flood risk management.
During the thesis phase the students, while remaining associated with a university, may occasionally carry out the research together with an industrial partner.
