Master of Science in Water Resources


Safe water and sanitation are fundamental to human development. When people are deprived of these, they face diminished opportunities to realise their potential as human beings. The Millennium Development Goals, advocated by the United Nations, provide a benchmark for measuring progress by regarding human rights to safe water. That is why the goal of reducing the proportion of the world’s population who have no access to safe drinking water is of paramount importance. Achieving this target is critical to the attainment of other goals of development.

The objective of the programme is to educate professionals and scientist to contribute effectively to the development and management of water resources on both local and global scale.

Career opportunities exist for a wide range of organisations including water related companies, research organisations, academic institutions, energy agencies, local, state and federal governments, and local authorities.
