About this course

The Integrated Water Management suite of programs is taught by lecturers from The University of Queensland, Griffith University, along with Monash University, The University of Western Australia and leading practitioners. The program aims to build future water leaders with an emphasis on working in WASH and community development, in urban water policy, planning and management, or across stakeholders in the context of integrating water resource management for water, food, energy and environmental purposes. The program draws on the expertise of international leaders in education and research across a wide breadth of disciplines, taking a critical and interdisciplinary "whole-of-water-cycle" approach that equips students with practical tools and skills for developing and managing the implementation of solutions to local, regional, national and international water challenges.

The program commences in semester 1 (February) each year with a mandatory intensive for both part-time and full-time international and domestic students.

Careers:

Participants will develop the leadership, managerial and technical skills they need to advance in the water sector, locally, nationally and internationally. Graduates will be able to pursue management positions and better able to exert leadership within public, private and non-governmental organisations. Students may enhance or pursue careers with water utilities, policy and planning bodies at various levels of government, consulting firms, mining companies and NGOs focussed on water related aspects of international development.

While this degree may be accredited by an official industry accreditation body in Australia, completion of the degree may not result in graduates receiving automatic accreditation. Students can contact the relevant registration body for details of any conditions for accreditation.
