Programmes for students with diverse backgrounds

Most of our students undertaking MSc studies in Integrated Water Resources and Watershed Management are drawn from diverse fields such as earth sciences, geographical sciences, biological sciences, environmental sciences, agricultural sciences and engineering. Our programmes integrate both physical and social sciences, thus providing an all round training for students who are planning to pursue careers in water resources management, assessment and monitoring. All our students are provided with an opportunity of undertaking a field-based project in their undergraduate programme. This exposes them at very early stage to various research approaches which enhances their problem solving and technical document drafting skills. We also attach our students to reputable institutions in the country where they learn new skills and experience real life working conditions. Our training approach also provides a good grounding for both Bachelors and Masters degree students planning to pursue further studies in hydrology and water resources, aquatic sciences, fisheries management and aquaculture technology, among others.
