Bachelor's International Land and Water Management

Drought, erosion, floods and poor land and water management constitute major threats to food production in large parts of the world. The BSc programme International Land and Water Management addresses these problems. Students combine knowledge of engineering, environmental and social sciences, study the roles of various stakeholders involved and design land and water management improvement plans. The consequences of interventions such as dams, terracing or irrigation systems on relevant stakeholders are examined in regions spanning the entire globe: from Thailand to Ethiopia and from Peru to the Netherlands.
