Water Resource Management
Sustainability and management of our valuable water resource (both its supply and its quality) is one of the biggest challenges facing Aotearoa New Zealand today.
Water Resource Management courses investigate sustainable techniques to assess and protect our freshwater resources and prevent further stresses and hazards upon this vulnerable commodity. Students will learn to evaluate the effects of domestic and commercial use on our aquatic ecosystems through practical survey fieldwork.
- Undergraduate students will benefit from the teaching and research work of leading staff from both UC and Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki | Lincoln University. The courses provide a pathway to UC’s specialist postgraduate programmes in Water Resource Management.
- Fieldwork forms an integral part of Water Resource Management courses through UC’s Cass Field Station.
While you cannot major or minor in Water Resource Management as an undergraduate student, you can take courses in the subject as part of any degree.
