Why Pursue a Master’s Degree in Water Cycle Engineering?

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 2.2 billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water, and 4.2 billion lack sanitation services. Furthermore, climate change is expected to cause increasingly frequent and disastrous droughts and floods. These facts and projections have motivated water companies around the world to initiate infrastructure adaptation plans. 

This master's program seeks to study each process within the water cycle in depth, as well as the design and operations of all the necessary infrastructures to guarantee safe water supply and the protection of river ecosystems.
