Are you the future water manager?

Managing sustainable freshwater ecosystems for a better life

Today’s world is facing an increasing demand of the resource water and related freshwater services. Against the background of climate change and its impact on the global economy, the sustainable handling and management of water is of paramount importance (e.g. flood protection). This applies to developed as well as to developing countries and addresses both drinking water supply and waste water treatment. European water legislation has already undergone a dramatic change with valuing the role of ecological approaches, for instance, with the Water Framework Directive. The implementation of ecologically sustainable and integrated water management practices, however, urgently demands for a new type of water managers. A fundamental understanding of ecosystem functions is crucial for them to integrate socio-economical, ecological and engineering sciences into future water management.

The international Master programme “Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management (TWM)

The two-year Master programme ”Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management“ (TWM) accounts for all these issues with a transboundary and interdisciplinary approach, particularly aiming at the ecological aspects of water management. It values rivers as natural systems which are key to human well-being worldwide.

TWM is a joint initiative of the University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany) and the Radboud University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands). The first semester is taught in Nijmegen, the second semester in Essen. The second year is dedicated to practice, i.e. to implement the knowledge within an external three-month internship and finally in context of the master thesis. Due to its international curriculum, the study programme allows the student for an insight in the interdisciplinary educational structure and the two cultures in Germany and the Netherlands. Students will graduate at both universities.

Course contents

Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management covers the scientific fields of:

  • Water ecology
  • Water chemistry
  • Water engineering
  • Water basin management
  • Flood management
  • Social environmental sciences
  • Environmental valuation

TWM is in line with the Bologna criteria and designed with a modular curriculum. Altogether 120 ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System) are evenly allocated to the four terms of the study programme. Thus, TWM is fully compatible on the international level.

TWM is developed in cooperation with scientists, managers and policy makers in the field of water (resources) management, both in public and private organizations in Germany and the Netherlands. Current and future issues in water management and ecology inspire the academic research. Along with state-of-the-art-theoretical concepts, this master degree programme will also have a strong career perspective.

As a graduate of this course, you will be well-trained to meet high standards and have good job opportunities at water authorities, water boards, consultancies, national and international NGOs. TWM may also provide a basis for an academic career.

The implementation of ecologically sustainable and integrated water management practices, however, urgently require a new type of water manager.

The first two semesters are taught in Nijmegen and Essen.

Digital Business Innovation and Transformation
Die Konzeption des weiterbildenden Masterstudiengangs „Digital Business Innovation and Transformation“ basiert auf der Erkenntnis, dass die technologische Entwicklung mit ihren steigenden Möglichkeiten zur Gestaltung von Unternehmen und Gesellschaft zu einer neuen Perspektive auf Domänen wie z. B. das strategische Management, das Marketing oder die Produktion, welche nicht mehr unabhängig von den Technologien erklärt und gestaltet werden können, führt. Die bisher vorherrschenden Sichtweisen stellen sich daher in den Unternehmen und auch in der Gesellschaft als nicht mehr ausreichend dar. Es bedarf der Integration von Technologiewissen und Domänenwissen. Genau diesen Bedarf adressiert der Studiengang.
