Master in Water- Environment- Oceanography (WEO)


1. OVERVIEW 
In responding to the huge demand of human resources in finding technological solutions for drinking water and waste water treatment as well as for climate change adaptation in Vietnam, the Master program “Water-Environment-Oceanography”, one of six priorities in USTH training program, has been created since November 2009. Accompanying a solid scientific training, the WEO master program will focus on studying the advanced technologies, which are currently unpopular or untaught in Vietnam, both in the field of water treatment (supply water, wastewater) and natural aquatic environments (modeling, remote sensing, and environmental engineering). Besides, with all the lessons are taught in English, main objective of this program is to train future leaders in the field of water science, who are capable to work for industries, consulting firms and government agencies (concerning water services, flood and environmental disaster prevention, natural resources management and land use).
