Studying Erasmus Mundus Master of Applied Ecohydrology at the University of Antwerp

Water challenges and ecosystem restoration are highly relevant topics on the global agenda. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Applied Ecohydrology (MAEH) focuses on finding and implementing solutions that ensure the sustainability of the uses and good ecological status of water and aquatic ecosystems, by merging ecohydrology with water engineering and integrated water management. MAEH graduates will have the holistic perspective and technical knowledge needed for solving the complex and multifactorial problems of water security and aquatic ecosystems sustainability, now and in the future.

Erasmus Mundus Master of Applied Ecohydrology: Subjects

MAEH is a two year master programme (120 ECTS credits) offered by four European Universities: University of Algarve (Portugal), the University of Lodz (Poland), the Technische Hochschule Lübeck (Germany) and the University of Antwerp (Belgium). After successful completion of the programme you will obtain the Joint Master degree in Applied Ecohydrology. The programme supported by the Erasmus+ fully financially supports 22 scholarships each year, including all expenses with travels, insurance, installation, university fees and 1000 euros monthly subsistence. The MAEH is scientifically supported by UNESCO Ecohydrology Programme of the Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme, that has been developing the concept of ecohydrology for more than 20 years. The course aims to create professionals that understand the complexity of the water problems and are able to develop transdisciplinary solutions for the 'world of work' and for society. Students will gain a transdisciplinary perspective on global water issues and will learn how to integrate ecosystem functioning (ecohydrology) with water engineering solutions and how to apply and manage selected solutions, in real social and economic contexts. The partners associated with the programme include private companies and public institutions at each of consortium member countries. Students will be exposed to the reality of the world of work, by the close collaboration of private and institutional stakeholders. Students will gain global knowledge, and international experience from various case studies in cooperation with UNESCO Ecohydrology and Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) demonstration sites.

The MAEH merges fundamental different expertise in Water Science:

ECOHYDROLOGY focuses on a scientific understanding and on nature-based solutions providing the knowledge, skills and competences to restore aquatic ecosystems carrying capacity and ecosystem services (University of Algarve and University of Lodz)

WATER ENGINEERING provides advanced engineering techniques and skills to plan, devise and implement technical structures and systems that can be used to restore and use ecosystems services in a sustainable manner and to reduce water-related risks to society (Technische Hochschule Lübeck)

INTEGRATED WATER MANAGEMENT focuses on the coordinated and integrated development, management and restoration of the water system today and in the future (University of Antwerpen). The course aims to create professionals that understand the complexity of the water problems and are able to develop transdisciplinar solutions for the “world of work” and for society.
