This master’s course is designed with an interdisciplinary and integrative approach that goes beyond addressing problems related to engineering, economic and environmental policy issues. The economic, ecological and regulatory policy dimensions of the water sector (e.g., quality control, distribution, treatment and recycling, national, cross-border and sustainable use, legal aspects etc.) are reflected in the curriculum along with the socio-cultural aspects. In content and methodology, this programme for young experts in water related fields provides a practice and need-oriented opportunity for continued training that places special emphasis on the development of intercultural communication skills. By working in small mixed groups, students are trained in intercultural communication and management skills, so that as graduates they will be in a position to cooperate on international projects in areas such as development cooperation or scientific-technological cooperation. English is the language of instruction. Upon successful completion of the course graduates will be awarded a master’s degree of each university.
