Education in the Water Systems and Global Change Group

Solution-oriented science for sustainable water system management - that is our approach. We analyse and assess the impacts of climate change and population growth on water systems and propose and test adaptation strategies. We use simulation models, earth system observations, scenario analysis and field studies and we invite students from different backgrounds, skills and interests to take part in our courses and research.

The Water Systems and Global Change chair group enjoys offering several courses as part of the Master's programmes International Land and Water Management, Environmental Sciences and Climate Studies. Next to this we coordinate the Bachelor Minor Climate Change: Mitigation and Adaptation. For a detailed description of the courses, click on the links in the list of courses below.
