It is the aim of this study cycle to offer training in the area of engineering and management of water in order to support the development of sustainable management of water resources. In the exercise of their profession Water Engineers should be able to: a) Evaluate water availability and needs in order to delineate a long term sustainable use of this resource; b) Explore and manage underground water resources in an environmental balanced way; c) Plan and design water supply systems and residual waters drainage and treatment systems, as well as to intervene with the goal of improving the operation efficiency of the existent ones; d) Manage water supply systems and residual waters drainage and treatment systems in a sustainable way, implementing systems of acting evaluation; e) Evaluate and manage the operation of water systems in the face of extreme hydrological situations using modelling tools.
The competences to be developed in the study cycle are: a) integrated overlook of the different urban water cycle components, b) water and wastewater management utilities considering efficiency and reliability principles, c) basic concepts of urban hydraulic, water and wastewater treatment processes, d) use of modelling tools and improve variable measurements for better manage the water systems. The curricular program focuses all the urban water cycle components (abstraction, treatment, transport, supply/collection), and also focus water management and measuring techniques and modelling.
Those who meet the following conditions may apply to the 2nd cycle of studies leading to the master degree: a) Holders of the degree in Engineering and Environmental Management, Civil Engineering, Environmental sciences or related fields, or legal equivalent; b) Holders of an academic, scientific or professional curriculum vitae that is recognised by the scientific council as attesting to the capacity to carry out this cycle of studies
