Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management
- Universität Duisburg-Essen
- Master M.Sc.

- Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany
The two-year Master programme ”Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management“ (TWM) does address current challenges in transboundary and international Water Management.
The degree program was designed in collaboration between the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany and the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands, with the aim to combine and mutually adapt different academic systems and types of learning and to cover a broad range of water related issues, thus offering broad opportunities for students for their personal and scientific development.
Close co-operation with the regional water industry and water authorities already during the planning as well as their participation in the education, e.g. provision of lectures, internships, practical training and projects, shows the relevance of this education and improves the perspectives of the future graduates.

Based on the changing profile an interdisciplinary degree program in the sector of ecological water management has been developed, which meets the requirements of the European job market.
The educational program will enable graduates to solve both classical and contemporary water resource management problems with a combination of engineering, ecological, planning and socio-economic knowledge; accordingly, it will be both a supplement and an alternative to existing degree programs solely focussed on engineering and natural sciences.
Thus, graduates will be given improved access to the expanding international job market.
