The current curriculum is a clear commitment to multidisciplinarity and a comprehensive conception of water resources management. From a scientific point of view, the practical vision that is shown by the programme is considered to be essential. The environment in general, and water specifically, is not an environmental good, but it has become a consumption good with an economic value that, in addition, is usually scarce.

On the other hand, providing students with methodologies and technical tools to empower them for analysing and interpreting the information on water resources is considered to be essential. The vertiginous evolution of these techniques, as well as the general use of some of them in the field of social and environmental sciences can open an important job bank for graduated students.
The knowledge provided by the theoretical body of the Master’s degree, combined with the given techniques, will empower students to address different work lines, bearing always in mind a clear economic and environmental component.
The Master’s degree is organised around three Modules: The first one is on compulsory subjects, the second one is about work placements and the third one is the Master’s Degree Final Project.

Throughout the first semester basic subjects and subjects with technological content will be taught:
Through the first ones it is meant to provide the student with the essential knowledge for a comprehensive understanding of the management dynamics in the water cycle. In order to do this it is necessary to strictly understand, also in practice, the water cycle itself from a supply and demand perspective. It is also about addressing the organisation and management of water resources in the territory and, finally, the legislative and normative content that regulates water management. The subjects in the technological field gather content related to the criteria and measuring tools on the quality of water, water purification and water distribution in urban networks, the treatment and regeneration of sewage water and desalination technologies. At the same time, the basic foundations of research methodology and the main analysis tools for water management will be addressed.

During the second semester subjects related to the efficiency in the management and economic viability of projects will be studied:
The analysis of economic efficiency and a comprehensive knowledge of the costs related to each one of the parts of the water cycle are a special focus of the programme. It is expected to analyse all the elements related to the administrative management or water resources both in the urban field and in the industrial and agricultural fields. The administrative requirements in the environmental field are also studied. Finally, it is about studying the economic and environmental viability in any facility or project related to the complete water cycle.
Throughout this same period it is also expected to do work placements and develop the Master’s degree final project. Both modules have to enable students to apply the knowledge acquired and show the maturity acquired through the learning process.
