Advanced Water Management Centre

With an international reputation for excellence in water research, UQ's Advanced Water Management Centre delivers great opportunities for research and successful graduate outcomes.

Master of Engineering (Urban Water Engineering)

The Urban Water Engineering field of study provides engineers with the integrated knowledge and skills required to grasp the whole urban water cycle and the linkages between its different aspects. Graduates will be equipped with the skills to design, optimise and manage the urban water infrastructure in the cities of the future.

Urban water systems are being challenged by the exponential global population growth, particularly in urban areas, and increasingly frequent extreme weather events. Rising water and wastewater flows, water scarcity and increasingly stricter water discharge limits impose an extremely high pressure on engineers to design, upgrade and manage effective sewer networks, and water and wastewater treatment processes. This Masters program provides all the necessary technical knowledge and skills, together with broader professional development, to address the complex and interdisciplinary challenges of urban water systems.

The program associates courses focused on leadership/process management to highly specialised technical courses in the field. The latter include classical and advanced methodologies for sewer, water and wastewater treatment processes, as well as an integrated management vision, and advanced electives in modelling, control and emerging issues in urban water.
