Joint Programme, Escuela Colombiana de Ingeniería Julio Garavito, Bogotá, Colombia and IHE Delft, The Netherlands20 Months, starts in August

New set-up MSc Programmes

IHE Delft introduces a new set-up for its MSc Programmes. From 2022 onwards, the Institute offers the MSc Programme in Water and Sustainable Development (68EC/120EC). More information will be available here as of 06 October 2021.

For whom?

This specialization is designed for hydraulic, environmental and water resources engineers from universities, consulting firms, research institutes, water boards and other government agencies, especially from Colombia and other Latin American countries. The typical participant uses or advises others in the use of mathematical models and hydroinformatics systems for planning, designing or managing the aquatic environment. 


Students who successfully complete this programme will be awarded with a double degree. One MSc degree in Water Science and Engineering by IHE Delft and one in Civil engineering with specialization in Hydraulic resources and environment (Recursos Hidráulicos y Medio Ambiente).


Start: 15 August 2020
Application deadline: 01 November 2020

Learning objectives

After completing this specialization, you will be able to:

  • Have a good understanding of the fundamentals of a range of physical processes, advanced modelling techniques and information technology for water management;
  • Be able to select and use simulation models applied to water-based systems in a wide variety of hydraulic, hydrologic and environmental engineering situations;
  • Be able to use current software tools, and know their advantages and limitations;
  • Know how to design, develop and integrate decision-support systems and tools;
  • Be able to provide advice to managers and users of advanced tools;
  • Understand and practice collaborative work, making use of Internet-based platforms.

Tuition & fellowships

Scholarship opportunities for Colombian students include: ColcienciasColfuturoICETEX and others. For students from other Latin American countries, there might be scholarship opportunities in the list below.

The following fellowships are recommended for prospective students who wish to study Hydroinformatics - Modelling and Information Systems for Water Management

  • National Fellowships in Latin America

    These fellowships are for nationals from the mentioned Latin American country. As IHE Delft is a UNESCO affiliated Institute and not a regular university, it may not appear in their website listings of eligible institutions. It is worth applying for funding once you have been academically accepted by IHE Delft, as these organisations will most likely consider your fellowship application. The name UNESCO-IHE (former name of IHE Delft) may appear in some application systems.

    Your country might also offer individual fellowships for studies abroad, contact your national Ministry of Education or a similar organisation/agency for more information.
