in water and environmental management


The Spring Semester in Water and Environmental Management is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on processes that affect surface and groundwater transfer and quality.

The majority of the courses are taught by faculty from the AGHYLE research unit.

The curriculum includes theoretical courses (surface hydrology, hydrogeology, fluid mechanics), applied courses (soil physics and chemistry), monitoring and modeling tools (water quality, modeling of transfers in saturated zones, GIS), and courses on water resource management (ecological engineering, interactions with agricultural activities, depollution) Field trips and site visits are also planned.

The program runs from January to May.
