Course Overview

Water security is one of the main threats facing humanity. Engineers will be the primary professionals tackling this problem. This programme will provide engineers will the technical competences to provide solutions to deliver safe/clean water. The programme will also give opportunities to students to study economics and the project management of large projects. Key components of this programme are a focus on understanding and using modern hydraulic modelling tools, and working in design groups.

Water engineering has been taught at graduate level at NUI Galway for over 40 years. Over 400 water resource engineering professionals from 56 countries around the world have received their postgraduate qualifications at NUI Galway. This programme has developed from the very successful International Postgraduate Hydrology Programme originally run by Professor Eamonn Nash. Staff are involved in large-scale funded research projects in water
resources, facilitated by our world-class research facilities.

Project Management (Optional module)


Semester 1 | Credits: 5

Project management is a means to an end and not an end in itself. The purpose of project management is to foresee or predict as many of the potential pitfalls and problems as soon as possible and to plan, organise and control activities so that the project is successfully completed in spite of any difficulties and risks. This process starts before any resources are committed, and must continue until all the work is completed. The primary aim of this course is to improve the effectiveness of people engaged in project management. It focuses on the essential concepts and practical skills required for managing projects in dynamic environments. This course aims to provide learners with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of project management and to equip them with simple yet powerful tools that will empower them to meet their full potential in the area of project management thus enabling them to implement successful projects on time, within budget and to the highest possible standard.

Why Choose This Course?

Career Opportunities

Traditionally around 50% of civil engineers are employed in the water industry. This is set to increase. Existing water infrastructure is straining to meet current demands. Population growth, increasing urbanisation, climate change and increasing energy demands are placing unprecedented pressures on our finite water resources. More water resource engineers are required to ensure the provision of sustainable and safe water supplies into the future.
