Almost 50 students who have earned Masters of Science degrees in Flood Risk Management and International Masters of Science in Environmental Technology and Engineering (IMETE) degrees received their diplomas at a graduation ceremony held 17 September at IHE Delft.
IHE Delft Rector Professor Eddy Moors discussed the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report in relation to floods and water quality issues in his remarks, encouraging the new graduates to join the scientific water sector community to help solve these challenges.
Twenty-four graduates had completed two years of Flood Risk Management studies as part of an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme coordinated by IHE Delft in cooperation with Technische Universitat Dresden (Germany), UPC Barcelona (Spain) and University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). The students spent part of their studies in Dresden, Delft, Barcelona, Ljubljana and some also at the programme’s associated partners - Deltares, DHI, HR Wallingford, Rijkswaterstaat, Rijnland Waterboard, HydroLogic, GeoEcoMar, ICHARM of Japan, Florida Atlantic University, IAHS and Bangladesh’s Institute of Water Modelling of Bangladesh.
The 23 IMETE graduates had completed a two-year Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme coordinated by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education in partnership with the University of Chemistry and Technology, Czech Republic, and Ghent University, Belgium. The students spent time in Prague, Delft and Ghent, followed by one semester of research with one of the partners. Five IMETE students are expected to graduate in mid-October, after they have finished their MSc research.
