Master of Integrated Water Management (coursework)
Integrated water management deals with the challenges facing water managers across the world including flooding and urban design, rural water and sanitation, climate change and water energy. Increasingly leaders are required to have the transdisciplinary skills to enable them to cross social, environmental and technological boundaries. This course provides the opportunity for advanced study from the perspective of whole-of-water-cycle, appropriately acknowledging all natural and human processes which water undergoes from catchment to coast. Students consider the impact of decisions systematically across environment, politics, law, science, culture, engineering, economics, health and society.
