The first year contains only compulsory courses (60SP) on mathematics, statistics, hydraulics, groundwater and surface water hydrology, irrigation agronomy, aquatic ecology, water quality, GIS and remote sensing, hydrologic data processing and measurements.
In the second year (60SP), most courses are organized as workshops and linked to an integrated project. Three workshops have to be selected among the following: groundwater modelling, soil water modelling, irrigation design and management, surface water modelling, river modelling, urban hydrology and advanced aquatic ecology.
In addition, all students follow the courses on systems approach and social, political, institutional, economic and environmental aspects of water resources.
The second year also includes a research thesis work (30SP).
This programme is jointly organized by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. It is one of the International Course Programmes supported by the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR-UDC).
