Research institute Wetsus started a separate academic master’s degree in Water Technology together with three highly regarded Dutch universities: Wageningen University, University of Twente and University of Groningen. Wetsus Academy coordinates and administrates this programme in Leeuwarden under the banner ‘WaterCampus’ in Leeuwarden. At the ‘Watercampus’ major players in Water Technology combine their facilities.
Water Technology sounds specific, but it is not. Water Technology in a broader perspective concerns worldwide environmental and sustainable issues in various industrial and public sectors. New technologies may prevent release of polluted water, antibiotic resistance of raw materials, and they may contribute to more biodiversity and healthier soil. In short, we want to contribute to a sustainable future, do you?
The Master programme is offered jointly by Wageningen University, University of Twente and University of Groningen with education being provided at the WaterCampus, in Leeuwarden. In the field of water (process) technology, breakthrough technological developments are required. Not only to enable the export ambitions of the water sector but also to solve global threats and challenges in society.
A combined technological approach, based on the state-of-the-art in science and technology, may offer a solution to several developments, within business and society, with a worldwide impact on the demand for and use of water. The Master Water Technology is a two year study programme and encompasses 120 credits. The programme starts annually in September. On the Wetsus Academy website you’ll find all the information about the courses and the programme outline.
