We have drastically changed the way our catchments operate, through land clearing, vegetation change and urbanisation. In a changing climate, extreme weather events are exposing the fact that our catchments are no longer resilient.
In the Graduate Certificate in Catchment Hydrology, you will learn how to design and deliver hydrological catchment analysis, to better manage our catchments.
In this graduate certificate, you will develop:
In the Graduate Certificate in Catchment Hydrology you will learn from a range of expert lecturers and experienced industry speakers. You will also have the opportunity to participate in practical workshops and field trips and benefit from individual academic and career mentoring meetings.
The graduate certificate provides a pathway into the Master of Catchment Science, for those who don’t meet the entry requirements of the master degree. The graduate certificate can also be completed on its own, if you already have experience in catchment processes and want to develop knowledge and skills in catchment hydrology.
Entry into the Graduate Certificate in Catchment Hydrology can be based on professional work experience or academic qualifications.

The knowledge and skills you will develop in the Graduate Certificate in Catchment Hydrology are in demand across the world. Graduates will find work in water utilities as well as local, state and federal government, and consultancies.
The Graduate Certificate in Catchment Hydrology provides a pathway into the Master of Catchment Science.
The Master of Catchment Science is the only catchment-dedicated postgraduate degree in the world. Hosted by the International WaterCentre and developed and delivered in collaboration with Griffith University, the degree is designed to meet the emerging needs of the global water management sector, to develop a new generation of water professionals who understand the full mix of bio-physical processes required to solve catchment issues.
International WaterCentre programs are enrolled through Griffith University and taught from the Nathan campus.
