Online Distance MSc Education 

The TU Delft offers a number of the courses of three MSc programmes online. This means that you can take part in the courses at a distance, via the Internet. Some of the courses can be followed online in their entirety, but for other courses you will need to come to Delft for some of the course components, such as the examinations. This will always be clearly indicated with the course in question on the website of the faculty concerned. The online courses are substantively identical to the courses given on campus. Here at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences we offer:

Online MSc track Water Management

The MSc Water Management track focuses on understanding natural surface and groundwater flows and the management, control and use of these flows for/by society. This covers both ground and surface water, as well as rainfall and, for example, waste water. Water Management considers both the quantity and quality of ground and surface water.

The whole MSc track can be taken online or individual subjects from this MSc can be selected. Students wishing to participate in the online MSc have to pay tuition fees, register at TU Delft and meet the admission requirements.
