New water process technology needs to be developed in order to produce clean water from alternative sources, to minimize the use of groundwater and to recover valuable compounds from waste water.
Water technology is offered as specialisation of MSc biotechnology and Msc chemical engineering at Wageningen University and University of Twente and University of Groningen, respectively.
The master Water Technology is a two year programme with a joint degree. The programme is offered jointly by Wageningen University, University Twente and University of Groningen with education being provided at the Technological Top Institute for Water technology (TTIW Wetsus), in Leeuwarden. Water technology is a multi- and interdisciplinary specialised master programme, based on combined knowledge from the field of Biotechnology and Chemical Engineering. In the field of Water Technology a combination of biological and chemical conversion (science) with separation technologies, sophisticated technological systems and new/improved materials (technology) offers many opportunities to develop innovations in water technology, especially when researchers work interdisciplinary and in close collaboration. The curriculum of the programme reflects on needed knowledge and skills to achieve abovementioned challenges in research and business. 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.
The specialisation is a joint responsibility of three Dutch universities, who have combined their expertise. Water technology is offered as specialization of MSc biotechnology and Msc chemical engineering at WU and University of Twente and University of Groningen. The focus of this specialistion is on development and design of all kinds of water processes. The main added value of the programme lies in the multidisciplinary use of biotechnology, chemical engineering and separation technology. The aim is to integrate knowledge of several disciplines, based on physical, (micro) biological, chemical and electrochemical principles. WU focuses on water technology within the field of Biotechnology (bioreactors, microbiology). Students are challenged with examples and case studies of real (research) problems that they might encounter as water professionals. They also operate in an inspiring environment of a major Water Technology research programme at Technological Top Institute Wetsus. Students of Wageningen University develop themselves into specialists in Water Technology with knowledge of the relations between water technology and the other specialisations of Biotechnology.
