Masterutbildning i vattenresurshantering
Having access to clean water is the cornerstone for improving healthcare, increasing food supply, reducing child mortality rates, and enhancing people's overall quality of life. It has become crucial to develop technologies that can tackle water security challenges and meet the increasing demand. By applying integrated water resources management, surface water and groundwater can be used to cover this demand in a sustainable and eco-friendly way.
These are the issues we explore with our students, as well as many other challenges such as wastewater treatment, storm water management, coastal hydraulics, and modelling of hydrological processes.
The programme is broad and covers the most important aspects of water resources engineering. Many of the courses included in the programme contain practical elements, which allow our students to deepen their understanding of the more theoretical components and to develop both professional and academic skills. Our strong links to industry and scientific cooperation projects ensure that our courses maintain a high level of relevance to current issues and developments.
The final semester of the programme consists of a degree project within a subject of your choice. The degree project can be carried out in Sweden or abroad and you can choose to do it within the university or at a company. Company-based degree projects often result in an offer of employment and can in any case be a useful experience to show potential future employers. Examples of companies where students have performed their degree projects include the Swedish Geotechnical Institute (Sweden), Ramboll (Denmark), and DHI (Sweden).

The need for clean water and sanitation is a global concern affecting large, densely populated cities and smaller communities in industrialised and developing regions alike. This Master's programme will prepare you for a rewarding and challenging career within an essential profession. Our graduates play important roles in the water sector all over the world, and their educational experience in Lund has assisted them in becoming outstanding professionals.
The skills you will acquire during the programme are sought after by organisations in a wide variety of industries, from large multinational corporations and non-profit organisations, to regional and national government bodies. Many students go on to become hydrologists, process engineers, hydrogeologists, consultants and water resource managers.
Others pursue an academic career within prestigious universities. Typical examples of organisations which have employed our graduates are Sweco (Sweden), Stockholm Environment Institute (International), Hussey Gay Bell & DeYoung (USA), Beijing YHR Environmental Engineering Co., Ltd (China). Some of our graduates move on to PhD programmes. Among the many universities which have accepted our students are KTH (Sweden), UC Davis (USA), and University of Melbourne (Australia).
