The MSc in Hydroinformatics aims to provide quantitative training in hydrology, hydraulics and modern ICT within the context of water management, preparing students to become hydroinformatic professionals equipped to follow a career in the water sector.
Current design and implementation of different water engineering projects such as water supply and distribution, urban drainage, flood management and protection, coastal protection, hydropower, irrigation and drainage and others all relay heavily on advanced hydroinformatic systems, with water utilities and environmental agencies requiring professionals who understand the underlying science and engineering. Hydroinformatics is at the forefront of the new challenges in the management of the water environment affected by climate change.
The course is underpinned by “World Leading and Internationally Excellent” research (RAE2008) carried out by Newcastle University’s School of Civil Engineering and Geosciences.
The modules currently studied are shown below:
- Quantitative Methods for Engineering
- Hydrosystems: Processes and Management
