PhD educational opportunities at UNESCO-IHE for Water Management:

The PhD programme enables MSc graduates to deepen their knowledge of their chosen area of specialisation. Participants conduct their own independent scientific research, often in multi-disciplinary teams, the findings and conclusions of which will be of direct benefit to their home country or region. PhD research is sometimes carried out using the ‘sandwich’ model. Participants prepare their research and finalise their theses – the first and last portions of the programme – in Delft, but conduct the actual research in their home country, under the co-supervision of a local institution.

The 18-month full-time Master of Science Water Management programme

The International Master’s Programme in Water Management provides an integrated and inter-disciplinary approach. In addition to the technical (physical, chemical and engineering) and non-technical aspects (legal, social, economic, financial, institutional and managerial), participants study the interplay between these technical and non-technical aspects. At the same time, the programme brings together the scientific study of water resources with practical planning and management skills. Participants are encouraged to study water management from a multi-disciplinary perspective and to seek integrated solutions. The programme offers four specialisations that focus on the different dimensions of water: Water Quality Management, Water Resources Management, Water Conflict Management and Water Services Management:

Specialisation Description
Water Quality Management Participants in this specialisation study the water quality impacts of human activities on aquatic ecosystems, as well as possible remedial actions appropriate to different levels of environmental stress and in various socio-economic contexts.
Water Resources Management Participants in this specialisation study ways of matching water availability and use, and seek to develop alternative land use and water allocation policies, including legal and institutional arrangements, from the local watershed to the basin scale and beyond.
Water Conflict Management Participants study the management of conflicts over water resources. It focuses on negotiation, mediation and decision-making processes, in order to prevent, manage and resolve conflicts concerning water.
Water Services Management Participants in this specialisation focus on the provision of water and sanitation services and the management of the related infrastructure, and design new institutional and financial instruments and business models for different socio-economic contexts.
