Sustainable Water Management

The Sustainable Water Management (SWM) courses are courses on the master level which focus on questions of sustainable use of water and water resources in the Baltic Sea region. They could be studied either as three separate courses or as one larger course. The full course, Sustainable Water Management (15 ECTS), consists of three parts: The Baltic Waterscape (4.5 ECTS), Water Use and Management (4.5 ECTS) and River Basin Management (6 ECTS). The individual parts can be studied as separate courses. The courses consist of lectures, seminars, excursions, and case studies, all accompanied by a series of three textbooks.

The courses are organized as an international cooperative program among universities in the Baltic Sea region. Since 2000 the courses are offered as campus courses by the participating universities. However, since 2003, there is also as an internet based distance learning course at Uppsala University. The latter course is open to all students anywhere in the world.

 

Aim of the courses

Aim of the course

The courses intend to give a professional knowledge on the state of the water resources in the Baltic region, their present use and management, and the challenge of creating sustainable water use practices in the different countries in the Baltic Sea catchment area. With the use of video-, audio- and data conference systems the participating students engage in common seminars.

 

Recommended student background

Students should preferably have a background in e.g., hydrology, geology, physical geography, agronomy, soil science, forestry or environmental engineering; other study areas e.g. biology, law with specialization on water issues etc., may also be relevant. The Water Management courses are best placed in the final part of the studies. Students are recommended to have studied the previous Baltic University Programme courses, in particular The Baltic Sea Environment. English is a prerequisite for students participating in common seminars and for distance learning students.

 

Web support

web supportThe water management courses are also offered as distance courses. All material for the courses, including introductions, the literature, interesting internet links and project tasks are therefore available in the public domain (www.balticuniv.uu.se/swm) and can be used by any student.
