About the course

Master's specialisation in Transnational Ecosystem-based Water Management

An international programme for future water managers, combining ecology, hydrology and socio-economics.

What is the best way to handle invasive species in a river ecosystem? Or how do you protect a city like New Orleans from floods? In this double degree programme, you’ll learn to tackle these kinds of problems on the basis of ecological, hydrological and social-economic aspects. We focus on ecological solutions, which are often more effective than technical adjustments. Think of estuaries with sea grass fields breaking the waves instead of reinforcing dikes, or self-purification of drainage-basins, making dredging unnecessary.

Student Profile(s)

Elvis Nubithga

I have a growing interest in maintaining a sustainable environment, also noticing the present-day quest for water-related resources that will face a great challenge in the nearest future, I tend to find myself more involved in finding solutions about how to solve problems linked to Lakes, Streams, Rivers, as well as landmasses with less or degraded system of irrigation. Traveling and an outdoor working environment, I quest in meeting and interacting with the general public.

The atmosphere in class: With just a few students in the classrooms. there has always been a high level of student-student and student-teacher interaction. This helped me to learn, share and ask questions easily when I faced challenges. The lecturers make sure the student have access to the relevant materials needed for the course and make individual research by giving assignments or projects.

Challenges and obstacles: I had a limited background in Biology, this was a problem for me at the beginning of the master's program, but with time I could catch up with courses.

Internship: I am not yet doing my internship. I still have to finish my second semester at the University of Duisburg-Essen.

Plans after receiving a degree: My goal is to become an Integrated Water Resource Manager after the completion of this program. Unlike other students who did this program, solving water-related problems linked to society as it tends to be more tricky these days, creating a link between societal development and environmental challenges, between engineering measures and ecological conservation. Having a career in this field would give me the opportunity to do something worthwhile for society, a chance to take initiatives and have decision-making authority.
