About

New water process technology needs to be developed in order to produce clean water from alternative sources like salt (sea) water, waste water or humid air minimizing the use of precious groundwater and to treat waste water and to recover valuable compounds. These challenges require academically-trained experts that can think out of the box and help to find practical solutions in the near future. To train and educate these experts a dedicated joint master’s programme in Water Technology at Wageningen University and Research has been set up.

Despite the enormous importance for society and the challenges for the market, water technology is not a focus point of most academic research and education programmes. Instead, the expertise of various research groups is usually concentrated on other processes and in some cases only later dedicated to water treatment in spin-off projects. Solutions are required for existing and new global problems related to the availability and quality of water for personal, agricultural, and industrial use in a sustainable manner with a minimal impact on the environment.

The design of the programme reflects on abovementioned challenges. These challenges are approached from a multidisciplinary perspective, bridging new technological and business developments on one hand and societal and user desires, needs and opportunities on the other.
