Flood Risk Master Programme
The unique two-year Flood Risk Master programme integrates science, engineering and socioeconomic topics through a range of courses taught by leading experts at four European universities: Technical University of Dresden (Germany), IHE Delft (Netherlands), Technical University of Catalonia (Spain) and University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). Successful students graduate with MSc degrees from TU Dresden and IHE Delft.
Deadline: 31 May 2020 (non-EU applicants) / 30 June 2020 (EU applicants)
Deadlines Erasmus Mundus Scholarship: 15 January 2020 (applicants from partner countries) / 15 February 2020(applicants from programme countries)
TU Dresden, Germany
The programme starts with the first semester at TUD, where students take either non-engineering or engineering subjects to complement their background and build a solid foundation for everyone. A fieldtrip to flood-prone areas is organised.
IHE Delft, Netherlands
At IHE Delft the students join IHE's Hydroinformatics programme, focussing on different types of modelling. On real case studies students learn how to apply and integrate various types of modelling and decision support systems. An international fieldtrip is offered as well.
UPC, Spain and University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
During the third semester the students take more specialised modules, such as Debris Flow and Coastal Flooding (including fieldtrips). The last part of the third semester is conducted at University of Ljubljana where the students study spatial planning and socio-economic and institutional frameworks for flood risk management.
During the thesis phase the students, while remaining associated with one partner, may occasionally carry out the research together with an industrial partner (which may be an Associated Member or not).
For anyone interested in becoming an expert in the topic, living an interesting and adventurous life across the Europe, attending the Programme should be a no brainer!
