Worldwide, water problems are increasing. The demand for

water is rising, the worlds population is growing and we are
faced by challenges such as climate change and pollution. In
Delft, you will acquire the knowledge and develop the skills that
you need to address these challenges. You will first get an
overview of the field and then you will get plenty of freedom to
focus on what youre really interested in: drinking water,
irrigation, groundwater, et cetera. There is a lot of choice, and
the level is high. According to the Stockholm International
Water Institute and Elsevier, Delft ranks number 1 in the
Netherlands and number 4 worldwide in the field of water
management. You will have ample opportunities to go abroad
for longer or shorter periods, and if you wish you can follow
some or all of the courses online. And last but not least, there is
a very active student association.
