Studying Hydrology & Water Management

Hydrology and water management deals with global water-related issues such as water quality and water distribution. Hydrology degrees are strongly connected to environmental engineering, but they can also include topics related to policy making and administration of resources. Graduates can become scientific resources managers, hydrogeologists or lecturers.
