Learn to use earth observation and geo-information techniques to create safe and sustainable water management solutions.
Many of the world’s major environmental concerns have to do with water. Potable water is getting increasingly scarce, which makes it a valuable resource to be managed wisely. Extreme weather causes excessive flooding which can often be prevented with proper by interventions. Pollution of valuable water resources and the status of precious wetlands deserve close monitoring. Would you like to contribute to tackling these issues caused by having too little, too much, or dirty water? Then ITC’s specialization in Water Resources and Environmental Management is what you’re looking for.
Timely, accurate, and detailed spatial information on the status of water resources is the key to managing water resources. At ITC you will learn how to utilize theoretical knowledge and develop the skills required for effective water resources management. ITC research areas you could explore include flood prediction, groundwater recharge, drought monitoring and prediction, water quality monitoring, and climate studies. For your own MSc research you’ll be able to join forces with dedicated ITC research group on Water and Climate.
