New TWM students received on Essen campus

Since 2005, a new generation of water managers is being educated at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) within the M.Sc. program „Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management“ (TWM). The major objective of TWM is to teach sustainable and integrated river basin and water management, covering the engineering, ecological and economic aspects within an interdisciplinary and practice-oriented program. Thereby, one focus of the English curriculum is on trans-national water management. This is not only reflected by the program’s name, but also by the structure. It involves two partner universities: UDE in Essen, Germany and the Radboud Universiteit (RU) in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Prof. Dr. Daniel Hering from the Faculty of Biology at UDE emphasized this particular strength, when he welcomed the new cohort of TWM students together with the study coordinator Conny Mooren from Radboud Universiteit on the ‚Welcome Day’. The students were invited to learn more about the upcoming summer term, which is going to start on 10 April. They also took this opportunity to get in touch with TWM lecturers at UDE.

For several years, a continuous increase of TWM students is observable, which reflects the rising demand for this integrated M.Sc. Program. Yet, it is not only the attractiveness of TWM, but also the job opportunities that render TWM a successful story: more than half of the students enter a water management-related job directly after graduation.
