The Spring Semester in Water and Environmental Management is an interdisciplinary program that explores the processes affecting the transfer and quality of surface and ground water.
The majority of classes are taught by associate professors from the HydrISE research unit.
The curriculum includes theory (surface-water hydrology, hydrogeology, fluid mechanics), applied classes (soil physico-chemistry), monitoring and modeling tools (water quality, modeling transfers in saturated zones, GIS) and classes on water resource management (ecological engineering, interactions with agricultural activities, pollution control). Excursions and visits to sites are also planned.
Classes run from January to May.
