The MSc (Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management), MSc (HEWRM), programme is hosted by the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The programme accepts both full-time and part-time students.

To qualify for the MSc (HEWRM) degree, a candidate must successfully complete a programme of study consisting of at least 40 Modular Credits (MCs). At least 30 MCs must be at graduate level within the subject or in related disciplines.

The core requirements in total are worth 28 MCs, of which 20 MCs are in the form of core modules, while the remaining 8 MCs are in the form of an MSc project for which students will work on innovative research in the HEWRM field. The remaining 12 MCs will be obtained from elective modules.

In addition, a student must obtain a minimum Cumulative Point Average (CAP) of 3.00 (equivalent to an average of Grade B-) for the best modules equivalent to 40 MCs (inclusive of core modules, where required). Furthermore, the grade point obtained for each of the 6 core modules must be at least 2.5 (equivalent to Grade C+). If this is not met, a student is allowed to re-take once, up to 2 core modules within the given programme time frame. The better grade will be used to compute the CAP.
