Master programme Water Technology


Master Water Technology

The Master programme is offered jointly by Wageningen University, University of Twente and University of Groningen with education being provided at the WaterCampus, in Leeuwarden.
In the field of water (process) 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. A combined technological approach, based on the state-of-the-art in science and technology, may offer a solution to several developments, within business and society, with a worldwide impact on the demand for and use of water.

The Master Water Technology is a two year study programme and encompasses 120 credits. The programme starts annually in September. On this page you find information about the courses and the programme outline.

The first year consists of two semesters, each with two periods. Period one, two and three consist of ten weeks each. During the first eight weeks, three courses of five credits are taught in parallel. Week nine and ten are reserved for (re-)exams. At the end of the first year students plan their internship (ten weeks).

The second year of the joint degree Water Technology is spent on a Business Case Design project, an elective part and a thesis (28 weeks). The internship, the design project and the thesis are the core components of this programme.
