Course Summary

The Hydroinformatics and Water Management (Euro Aquae) MSc applies advanced information and communications technology to the management of water. You will foster a common international technical culture with students from all over the world, drawing upon the resources and expertise of universities across Europe.

The course offers a joint degree between five European universities as a part of the Erasmus + co-operation and mobility programme. Running since 2004, it is one of the most successful courses in this programme and in 2016 it was approved for a third term of funding.

You will receive quantitative training in hydrology, hydraulics and modern information communication technology (ICT) within the context of water management.
