Msc.Land and Water Management

The goal of the Land and Water Management program (LWM) is to stimulate creative thinking about the methodical approaches for managing land and water resources. The program is based on combining the sustainable social, environmental, and technical dimensions of both natural and man-made water resources and land features.

The master study program offered in English for LWM is open to graduates with a solid background in environmental sciences, landscape ecology, conservation biology, urban –regional or spatial planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering or math, and other related earth-science studies. Previous course credit in statistics, physics or calculus is a plus for entering this degree program. International students from other countries and the greater EU are strongly encouraged to apply, as are Czech speaking bachelor students from Land and Water Resources.

The LWM Masters of Science degree (MSc) provides a solid understanding in both applied and theory-based resource management – based on principles of applied landscape ecology. LWM is an accredited degree program required for practice of landscape engineering and design as specified by the Czech Society of Landscape Engineers, in the EU, and applicable to international locations as well.

The two-year study program consists of required courses and research-based field studies. Course work includes: applied statistics, ArcGIS, environmental law and environmental policy, land management, soils and erosion control, irrigation and drainage management, hydraulics and applied hydrology, resource economics, and settlement patterns of the Czech Republic. Students may take additional classes not included in the LWM study plan; these will be added to your diploma supplement.

Students lean by working on real projects. We often focus this work on the dynamic and varied landscape of the Czech Republic, however students will also travel to neighbouring countries in Central Europe to study differing approaches to LWM.

Graduates will be well qualified to apply this new knowledge and skill-set to solving problems in the area of research and innovation in LWM. This will open the doors toward employment in environmental and land management, water resources and civil engineering, working for project planning companies, nation and international organizations, etc. Resources are available for graduates who choose to continue their studies at the PhD level.
Erasmus exchange students at MSc level can enrol for one or two semesters.
