Water and Environment is a two-year MSc programme consisting of four 15 ECTS course modules in China and a 60 ECTS MSc thesis in China and/or Denmark. During the programme you focus on five main areas:
- Hydrology, Freshwater Ecology and Biogeochemistry
- Pollutants and Pollution Control
- Statistics, Modelling and Global Change
- Integrated Water Management and Legislation
- The thesis project with both a Danish and a Chinese supervisor
The courses during the first year provide you with knowledge and competencies in basic disciplines, but you will also follow solution-oriented courses such as water pollution control, soil and groundwater remediation, water management and computer modelling of future scenarios regarding water resources and quality.
The courses also prepare you for the independent thesis work (60 ECTS) in the second year of the programme.
Teaching and Language
The teaching is organised in small, exclusive classes (maximum 30 students) in alternation with practical exercises, project assignments, and excursions. These activities ensure a high level of learning and let you apply research and investigative methods in practice as well as theory.
All teaching is in English. You are not required to speak Chinese at the university. However, all international students studying in China must attend language and culture classes alongside their studies.
On completion of the MSc programme you will be awarded the title Master of Science (MSc) in Water and Environment.
