MSc. In Water Science and Egineering / Agricultural Water Management for Arid and semi-Arid Climates

Water management and flood protection plans and designs can be based on the management capacity and development constraints. It is thus of major importance that prior to the preparation of technical designs, concepts are formulated for the system management. The development of regional development and land use plans, the selection of water management methods, flood protection, development of infrastructure, as well as organisation and financing systems can be determined on the basis of these concepts. In this master you will learn to deal with the development, adaptation and management of agricultural water management and flood protection provisions for arid and semi-arid climates.

Students who successfully complete this joint double degree programme will be awarded two Master's degrees: one from UNESCO-IHE and one from HU (Haramaya University). The degree students receive from UNESCO-IHE is the degree in Water Science and Engineering with a specialization in Agricultural water management for Arid and Semi-Arid Climates. HU will award an MSc degree in Irrigation Engineering. These degrees will only be awarded to participants who have successfully completed both the course work.
