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.
