About

Find out more information about Hydrology & Water Management

Hydrology is studying the movement, distribution and quality of water on the planet, while water management is related to the development of policies and regulations. Resources and sustainability are analysed in the practical parts of a Bachelor’s degree in hydrology and water management. The discipline covers both academic study and development based on solutions. Research institutes offering prestigious Masters and Bachelors in Hydrology and Water Management are known worldwide, especially among international students.

The field of study covers subjects such as hydrogeology, marine hydrology, drainage basin management, water quality, irrigation, water conservation and water treatment. Students graduating a Master’s degree in Hydrology and Water Management closely work with environmental engineers, geologists and civil engineers.

Water management also includes treatment of drinking water, industrial water, sewage and wastewater, flood protection and the water table. Opportunities after graduation cover jobs as a group manager in a private company, university lecturer, scientists in hydrology or water resources consultant in a state agency.
