The IUPWARE programme offered me a good opportunity to learn the field's different facets ranging from irrigation and drainage to
surface and groundwater hydrology to the use of hydrologic and hydraulic models, and applications of GIS and remote sensing.
This forms a solid foundation for anyone aspiring to pursue more advanced studies or a specialised career in the field of water resources
engineering. One of the strengths of the programme is its nice mix of theory and practice, giving students a more complete insight into
the topics addressed. Some of the exercises were conducted in groups, which provided good training for the real-world demands of working in a team. Aside from the technical aspects, IUPWARE also offers an excellent opportunity to meet a variety of people and learn different cultures, as the student population is very international. The group I graduated with included students from 10 different countries.
