Urban water systems are fundamental to society, through the supply of safe drinking water and waste disposal, and through the amenity and ecological roles of water. Significant resources are invested to ensure that complex urban water systems meet the levels of service and performance requirements defined by increasingly strict legislation, whilst minimising financial, environmental and social costs. The continued development, operation and management of these systems requires highly trained individuals with knowledge and practical skills that spans science, engineering and management. This course provides the educational base and professional foundation for this, producing graduates that stand out for their ability to integrate scientific principles, engineering knowledge and management techniques for creative problem solving.
