Beschreibung

Would you like to contribute effectively to the development and management of water resources? If your answer is positive, you should check this Master of Water Resources Engineering (Leuven et al), imparted by KU Leuven, that Emagister.co.uk presents to you.

The Master’s programme provides multi-disciplinary and high-quality university education in the field of water resources engineering. Students will be trained with technical and managerial knowledge and skills to: (i) successfully plan, design, operate and manage water resources projects; and (ii) advise and support authorities in decision-making and policy-making that enhance the safe exploitation and re-use of wastewater and the equitable distribution and conservation of local, regional and global water resources.

Water Resources Engineering deals with the methods and techniques applied in the study of: water needs; problems related to storm water drainage and flood damage mitigation; problems related to water quality in streams and aquifers, erosion, sedimentation, protection of ecosystems and other natural resources; integrated water management; and institutional, socio-economic, and policy issues related to water resources development and management.

Through the choice of 3 elective courses and a specific topic for thesis research, you can tailor your study programme to fit your interests. So, if you want more information about this programme contact KU Leuven through Emagister.co.uk without hesitation. You won’t regret it!

Welche Ziele verfolgt der Kurs?

Water Resources Engineering deals with the methods and techniques applied in the study of:

water needs for agriculture, industry, households, recreation, navigation, hydroelectric power generation
problems related to storm water drainage and flood damage mitigation
problems related to water quality in streams and aquifers, erosion, sedimentation, protection of ecosystems and other natural resources
integrated water management
institutional, socio-economic, and policy issues related to water resources development and management

Ist dieser Kurs für mich?

Career prospects in the water sector are excellent. The water sector proves to be a stable employment environment with a continually rising need for highly educated professionals. Programme graduates will deal with the exploitation and management of water resources and, to a lesser extent, with education and research. Graduates are therefore prepared to fulfil both a professional and academic role. The programme's academic-level education not only prepares water sector professionals but also future lecturers and researchers, creating a multiplier effect that spreads across many countries.

Themenkreis

Candidates must hold a Bachelor's degree from a four-stage programme in agricultural, civil or environmental engineering. Study results should reflect the equivalent of a 70% pass rating in Flanders. Students should have a proven proficiency in English. Applicants from non-English-speaking countries should have a TOEFL score of at least 550 on the written test and 213 on the computer-based test or equivalent results on a similar language test.

Students from a 5-stage engineering or equivalent degree, including the prerequisites to the second stage courses, can be exempted from 60 ECTS. Applications are evaluated on an individual basis.

A graduate (can)

1.  Possesses technical and scientific knowledge and integration skills to advice and support authorities in decision making and the development of policies and regulations to manage water resources, meet the water needs and safeguard the availability for current and future generations.

2.   Possesses specialized knowledge in modelling tools and practical skills in running simulations for planning, designing, operating and managing specific water resources systems.

3.  Analyse and interpret hydrological data and spatial data for managing water resources and employ measurement techniques to monitor water resources.

4.  Understand and analyse institutional, socio-economic and policy issues related to water resources development and management.

5.  Understand and analyse problems related to storm water and flood control, irrigation and drainage, groundwater, water treatment, water quality protection of ecosystems and other natural resources.

6.  Interact with other relevant science domains and integrate them to come up with sustainable solutions supporting the implementation of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) principles through an appropriate science-policy interface.

7.  Demonstrates critical consideration of and reflection on known and new theories, models or interpretations within the specialty.

8.  Plan and execute target oriented data collection or model simulations independently, and critically evaluate the results.

9.  Present personal research, thoughts, ideas, and opinions of proposals within professional activities in a suitable way, both written and orally, to peers and to a general public.

10.  Function in an interdisciplinary team.
