Short Introduction to TWM

Transnational ecosystem-based Water Management (TWM) is an integrated interdisciplinary Master degree program in the sector of ecological water management offered by the Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Duisburg-Essen. It focuses on four main fields of education - aquatic ecology, hydraulic engineering, management & planning, and socio-economics.

In addition, students have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in particular areas in various elective courses offered.

As an international program, TWM is designed as a modular curriculum. Student performance will be assessed on the basis of an ECTS (European Credit Transfer System)-compatible point system. This facilitates comparability of study achievements for other universities and institutions of higher learning as well as the international acceptance of the graduates.
