Scope of IUPWARE Programs
The MSc in Water Resources Engineering addresses water-related issues in developed and developing countries, with a focus on problems in the latter. The general programme objective is to educate professionals and scientists who contribute effectively to the development and management of water resources on both a local and global scale.
The Interuniversity Programme in Water Resources Engineering (IUPWARE) has a long tradition of research and education in the field of water engineering. Benefiting from the cooperation between the three faculties of KU Leuven’s Science, Engineering and Technology Group and the Department of Hydrology and Hydraulic Engineering of the VUB, IUPWARE enables a sound and comprehensive engineering approach to the management and exploitation of available water resources.
Testimonial of our masters student
“The IUPWARE programme offers a good opportunity to form a solid foundation for anyone aspiring to pursue more advanced studies or a specialized career in the field of water resources engineering. One of the strengths of the programme is its nice mix of theory and practice, giving students a more complete insight into the topics addressed. IUPWARE also offers an excellent opportunity to meet a variety of people and learn different cultures.”
The interuniversity programme in water resources engineering (IUPWARE) was successful in maintaining ICP status. In our application the interaction with alumni was emphasized. Another important point was to cooperate with similar MSc programmes in the South. By organizing specific events on a regular basis we like to achieve these objectives. The first alumni event took Read more about Alumni event 2018 in Cuenca, Ecuador[…]

This year (2017) an integrated project was made in the North of Tanzania: the Makanya catchment. The students have made an informative video showing the environment, their field work and a summary of the results. A number of IUPWARE students had the opportunity to perform field work in the study area. See and enjoy the Read more about Integrated project Tanzania[…]
The integrated project edition 2016 was presented on Friday 25 March. The students were pleased to finish their project work succesfully.
