The programme focuses on current challenges such as climate change, dealing with stakeholders in nature development projects and on the aspects of the monitoring cycle. You will be trained to develop a professional working method and attitude. This programme has been developed in cooperation with expert groups from the water sector, to assure that our students are well prepared for the professional practice.  For example knowledge of and practical experience with the Water Framework Directive will be part of the programme; this is an EU directive that strongly influences the work of a present-day water professional.

The programme offers possibilities for careers in governmental organisations at all levels, water boards, research institutes, consultancy companies and non-profit organizations.
