Objectives and learning outcomes

On successful completion of this programme, students will have achieved the following competencies:

  • advanced scientific understanding and technological knowledge in water technology and in integrated water management
  • in-depth knowledge of new technologies for water use and reuse based on an integrated water resources management approach
  • knowledge and skills to select and apply relevant tools for collecting, interpreting and assessing (qualitative and quantitative) information from a variety of relevant sources on water technology and integrated water management
  • ability to assess the quality and relevance of studies performed by others
  • skills to take an active part in evaluation work him-/herself
  • ability to formulate integrated proposals as a contribution to the solution and prevention water related problems
  • skill to critically analyse policy plans, management proposals and measures for implementation and contribute to their set up.

Final examination

A student’s final result is a weighted average of the exam results the student has obtained for all the programme components of his/her training programme. In calculating the final result, the credits corresponding to the various programme components are used for weighting the results obtained for those components.

The final result is expressed as an integer out of 100.

A student whose final result is less than 50 out of 100 can never be declared successful.

A student is successful for the training programme if he/she has obtained credits for all the programme components in his/her training programme.
