BACHELOR OF LAND AND WATER MANAGEMENT (BSC)
The importance of managing our land and water resources
The Bachelor of Land and Water Management revolves around the use and management of our land and water resources. The Netherlands has always been closely related to water. For centuries, water has been both its best friend and its worst enemy. Due to this ambiguous relationship, the Dutch have learnt to deal with water like nobody else in the world. Not only do the Dutch know how to keep their country safe from flooding, they also know how to use their water resources to their advantage. However, the world keeps evolving, and factors such as climate change will continue to affect our land and water resources in a significant way. The fight against water is becoming more and more challenging, which is why land and water managers are sorely needed, to find appropriate solutions for taming the growing water masses and keeping our land dry. On the other hand, answers also have to be found for those parts of the world that are experiencing water shortage. We need to find ways to live with these changes and challenges, and combine them with our lifestyle, recreation, nature and agriculture. We also need to solve the global problem of ensuring enough drinking water all over the world and using water as a sustainable source of energy. As a land and water manager, your task will be to find appropriate solutions for these and many more issues related to our land and water resources, and promoting their sustainable use.
