M.Sc. in Water Resources Management
Thursday, 06 January 2011 16:54


M.Sc. in Water Resources Management

Water management traditionally has focused on manipulating the world's vast freshwater resources to meet the needs of humans. Constraints such as increased development costs and increasing concern for the environment have forced water managers to consider alternative approaches. Although water is a renewable resource, worldwide demand for water increases exponentially while quality and quantity of fresh water in many regions is deteriorating fast. 

Water engineers, managers and sector relevant professionals therefore require a much broader understanding of water issues than previously.

The program is designed to provide the students with a sound theoretical and practical knowledge of the principles of water resources assessment, evaluation development and management. The program is also intended to enable students to update their hydraulics and computational expertise, to appreciate the environmental implications of water resources, and to develop management skills.

Candidates possessing the following educational and Professional qualifications are eligible to apply for the program
(i)    Bachelors degree in Science, Engineering, Agriculture or Natural science from a recognized university
(ii)    Any other equivalent qualifications acceptable to PGIS
Candidates who meet the eligibility requirements will be called for an aptitude test and interview and selected candidates will be admitted to the program. Employed candidates should show evidence of leave granted to follow the program and a letter of release from the head of the department /institution.


Local candidates    Rs. 100000/-
SAARC countries    US $ 3300/-
Other countries    US $ 6600/-


This is a full time programme consisting of coursework and a research project. Coursework will be conducted over a period of two semesters of 15 weeks each, during Fridays (if necessary), Saturdays and Sundays. The entire programme duration will be about 15-18 months inclusive of 3 - 6 months for the research project.  Satisfactory completion of a minimum of 24 credits of course work (with a GPA of not less than 3.00) is required for the programme in addition to the 6 credits allocated for the full-time research project. The student who does not satisfy the above criteria but obtains a GPA in the range 2.75 to 2.99 for course work is eligible for the Diploma in Water Resources Management but not the M.Sc. Degree. Continuous attendance on full-time basis is compulsory during the period of research work. After successful completion of the research project, the student is eligible for the award of the M.Sc. Degree.
