Overview of the EWRE research group

Overview of the EWRE group

The research interests of the Environmental and Water Resource Engineering (EWRE) Section, focus primarily upon aspects of Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Management and Solid Waste Management. The Section addresses some of the most fundamental issues for society including: flood protection, sustainable water resource development, the provision of safe water supplies and sanitation, and the management of wastes and their environmental impact.

Available MSc Courses

Climate-KIC Masters Programme


Climate KIC logoJoin our programme alongside your Masters degree in Environmental Engineering or Hydrology and you will have the opportunity to take part in our summer school and receive funding to do mobility for your masters research project or an internship. You will also write part of your thesis on climate innovation and to support this we offer a series of thought provoking talks, seminars, and courses. For more information visit: Climate-KIC.
