Master of Science (MSc) in Water and Environment

The MSc programme in Water and Environment enables you to work professionally with the sustainable use and management of the world's freshwater resources.

As a student of Water and Environment you will start with courses in the basic disciplines of hydrology, freshwater ecology, applied statistics, nutrient cycling and biogeochemistry, contaminants and ecotoxicology, methods in numerical decision systems and modelling.

In the second semester you will take more specific solution-oriented courses such as water pollution control, soil and groundwater remediation, geospatial ecology, urban water management, global change and integrated catchment modelling.

The programme thus brings together essential courses that equip you to make well-informed decisions in respect to the aquatic environment, land use and ecology.

The programme takes place at the Sino-Danish for Education and Research (SDC) in Beijing China. The programme is offered in English and yields a double degree from The University of Copenhagen and the Chinese university University of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research (SDC) is a joint research and education cooperation between all eight Danish universities, the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education, the Chinese university University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS ) and the Chinese research institute Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The overall aim of SDC is to promote and strengthen collaboration between Danish and Chinese research and education for the benefit of both countries. SDC offers master's degree and doctoral degree programmes for Chinese and Danish students.
