Field of Study

Urban Water Engineering

Graduate Certificate in Engineering Science

This field of study provides engineers with the integrated knowledge and skills required to grasp the whole urban water cycle and the linkages between its different aspects.

The trend towards urbanisation and associated water stress in modern cities is strengthening, and as the urban centres become more densely populated this will not be reversed in the foreseeable future. Globally, there is shortage of engineers with expertise in all aspects of the urban water cycle and their reciprocal influence and integration.

Develop your technical expertise through advanced and master's level courses, and select electives to complement your discipline. You'll graduate with the skills required to solve complex engineering challenges in a changing world.
