Do you want to dive into global water challenges and find sustainable solutions?
Water is one of the Earth's most important and fascinating natural resources. We simply cannot do without it. However, safe and clean water is becoming increasingly scarce, and conflict over water is growing. So how can we make sure there is enough water available for everyone? Can we ensure good quality water for agriculture, ecosystems and people? And how can we minimise the impact of extreme flood events in dense urban areas?
Hydrologists are needed everywhere. The Netherlands is internationally known for its experts in the field of water management. Thus, where better to study hydrology than in Amsterdam? In our Master, you will investigate water challenges and processes from a systems perspective. The Master offers interdisciplinary perspectives, a personal teaching style, and has a hands-on, international and real-world approach.
During the programme you will gain skills, including modelling and fieldwork, that allow understanding the processes driving the water cycle, and enable you to address risks related to water quantity (such as floods and droughts) and water quality (such as pollution).
