What can you use this qualification for?
The program explores sustainable solutions for poor and rich countries. Students are provided an overview of technical solutions and advantages and limitations of different water and sanitary systems, as well as socioeconomic factors of relevance for successful implementation. Furthermore, the program aims to build necessary competence to design and implement decentralized and small-scale solutions for water and sanitation, including natural and source separating systems for wastewater treatment
The first year provides an introduction to sustainable water and sanitation, health and development, soils and hydrogeology, as well as the initiating your thesis project. The second year is dedicated to technical design of systems, advanced courses in hydrogeology, water pollution, limnology and/or water treatment treatment and your MSc thesis. The program has focus on problem based learing and solving of cases from different parts of the world in group work. Local cases are utilized to give “hands-on”experience. The MSc thesis project is taken over the last semester, but students are encouraged to start the work/data collection earlier. Thesis work in a foreign country is a great learning experience and is encouraged. The students have possibilities to take a semester or thesis work with for example one of our sister programs in Nepal or Pakistan or with research partners in Canada or Alaska.
Program-specific admission requirements: Applicants should have an university bachelor degree equivalent to at least 180 ECTS.
