Our vision is a water management that acknowledges the multifaceted threats to human life and well being imposed by overuse and overexploitation of freshwater resources and the ecosystems providing the resources. Past experience has proven that mere engineering is not sufficient. Water management needs to integrate ecology and economy, engineering and social sciences, to be able to come up with long-term, i.e. sustainable solutions.
Our mission is to educate the future water manager. We provide the training to understand the basic principles of all related management sectors: ecology, economy, engineering and social and management sciences. We teach the skills and the knowledge to identify relevant challenges and to develop tailored and integrated solutions.
