About

The Master of Advanced Studies in Sustainable Water Resources offered by ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology advocates an integrated vision of sustainable water resources management, with a focus on technical training and high level research.

Overview

The Advanced Studies in Sustainable Water Resources program at ETH Zurich - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology is designed to advance the education of scientists and policy makers on the importance of water availability and water scarcity in a changing world, at the same time preparing them to face the challenges of the future, e.g. climate and land use change, increased water use and population growth. The MAS ETH SWR is interdisciplinary.

Participants will acquire skills which will enable them to become leaders in implementing sustainable and environmentally conscious water policies in their home countries. Students propose a research topic, around which a tailor-made study programme is established. Research areas include topics such as water quality, water quantity, water for agriculture, water for the environment, adaptation to climate change, and integrated water resource management.

Program philosophy 

The MAS program is designed to advance the knowledge of water professionals and to generate collaboration between water resources engineers and scientists in Switzerland and abroad. The philosophy of the MAS is that students propose relevant research topics from their home countries, around which individual study programs are devised, and about which they write their thesis. The target audience is 10 students per year, the majority of which are international students.
