Program description

Study Sustainable Water Technology

Healthy water is vital to people, animals and plants. In our Certificate of Sustainable Water Technology, you will look at the miracle called water from an environmental, social and technical point of view. You will learn how to produce clean healthy drinking water and how to purify wastewater. You will also explore the social aspects of water technology: you will learn about water policy, different water demands in different countries and how to deal with these technologically.

And of course you will learn to deal with water treatment from an economic point of view: you will learn how to calculate technology cost and investments. This is called the Triple P-approach: looking at solutions from a social (people), environmental (planet) and an economic (prosperity) point of view and finding the most favourable combination, and to communicate this effectively.

Main topics and projects:

  • Energy and waste
  • Research Management
  • Water treatment and soil remediation
  • Balancing People-Planet-Profit
  • Plant and process design
  • Sanitation
  • Energy from water
  • Nutrient recovery
  • Water reuse
  • Sludge management

Our modules consist of theory and practical work. We engage water technology companies like Wetsus and Vitens for guest lectures. If you have finished your Certificate programme in Sustainable Water Technology but would still like to learn more about the field, you can enrol in our Bachelor of Environment for a year and earn a Bachelor’s degree!

Admission requirements

To qualify for enrolment, you should successfully have completed two years of Bachelor-level study programme in a relevant field. Applicants with a different background may also be eligible for enrolment. Several years of relevant working experience may compensate for a lack of formal qualifications. Moreover, you must have a sufficient knowledge of the English language (e.g. TOEFL exam with a score of 550, IELTS 6.0) and basic computer skills. Some programmes may have additional entry requirements. Applicants with a different background may also be eligible for enrolment. Please visit our website for these extra entry requirements. All qualifications will be assessed and approved for admission by the VHL admissions board.
