There is a global demand for scientists, engineers and professionals trained in the area of water resources engineering and management.
The water resource engineering and management masters at GCU is designed to expand students' educational horizons across traditional subject boundaries, encompassing sustainable development and technology and international policy / legislation in the area of water engineering and water resource management.
Growth of population and industrialisation requires increasing water demand. Meanwhile limited consumable water resources, climate change, no or less efficient sanitation and water pollution result in more water stress and scarcity problems globally, especially in the less developed countries. Subsequently, one billion people rely on unimproved drinking water sources and 2.5 billion people still lack access to improved sanitation facilities.
This programme aims to provide a high quality professional education for engineers and professionals in water engineering and water resources management.
Students will be assessed via a combination of examinations, coursework, presentations, computer-based tests, case study analysis, reports and the final dissertation.
