The Master of Integrated Water Resources Management is designed to have 240 credits at NQF Level 9. The programme aims to create a fertile niche area where applied research in water resources can be enhanced in future. The programme will be a combination of coursework and a thesis; therefore, research will be embedded in the whole programme. Though the final thesis will be a very important output, the laboratory work, field reports and team projects will also foster research at both individual and collective levels. This Master’s degree aims at producing middle and high level professionals who can analyse and produce practical solutions to the water related problems of the country and beyond. Indeed, with the theoretical foundation provided as part of the coursework, the graduates should be able to play their role in the management of water resources as individuals and as part of a team.
