Water is one of the most precious resources on earth. The growing demands for safe, clean and affordable potable water can only be met by increased interdisciplinary knowledge of water quality and the advanced, effective and sustainable treatment of water.
The master course Water Science shall impart in-depth knowledge and practical experience in natural science aspects of aquatic systems with focus in chemistry, microbiology and analytics.
The course comprises compulsory modules in analytical chemistry, applied microbiology, biofouling/biocorrosion, chemometrics, environmental microbiology and water chemistry. Within these areas, three practical courses are required. 32 out of 90 CPs are allocated to optional courses that can be chosen from a variety of water-related topics to set a more individual study focus.
The master course Water Science comprises 120 credits (ECTS) including a master thesis (30 CP).
