About Smart Water and Environmental Engineering Specialization

Water infrastructure continues to face significant challenges of complex nature in many cities. Rapid urbanization, climate change, ageing infrastructure and the emergence of new contaminants necessitate the need for a paradigm shift towards a new kind of water management intelligence. The advent of the Internet of Things (IoT), advanced modelling, simulation and visualization techniques, and a need for more sustainable smart cities, are already leading to a digital transformation of the water sector. Water operation systems are increasingly being integrated with cyber-physical systems, digitalization, and big data.

​The MSc. study specialization in smart water and environmental engineering introduces students to traditional engineering approaches, cutting-edge digital technologies and data analytics techniques to address complex water challenges within the context of sustainable development.
