Through a number of case studies, workshops, field trips and problem-based learning projects (PBL’s) program, Master of Integrated Water Management participants can integrate their learning from the co-requisite courses by applying trans-disciplinary knowledge and skills to specific water-related problems. They also participate in an integrated water management capacity building workshop and a one-day water leadership masterclass, which assist in the development of higher-order water management skills.
The culminating experience in the program is the final project, undertaken over one trimester for full-time students or two trimesters for part-time students.
Participants experience a number of field trips throughout the program. Some field trips are for all particpants and some relate to the specilisation stream chosen.
For all students:
For students who take the ‘WASH and development’ specialisation:
For students who take the ‘Urban water’ specialisation:
For students who take the ‘Water, land and people’ specialisation:
Problem-based learning (PBL) projects comprise roughly 50% of the assessment weight for both the Foundation and Integration trimesters. Full-time students complete two PBL projects per trimester, while part-time students complete one PBL per trimester.
Participants design and undertake self-directed project work aimed at consolidating and applying concepts and methodologies learned in the Foundation, Integration and Specialisation trimesters.
Scholarship and visa conditions permitting, projects can be undertaken in Australia or overseas.
