International WaterCentre
Master of Integrated Water Management

CRICOS 059263A (The University of Queensland)
This program takes a trans-disciplinary ‘whole-of-water-cycle’ approach that equips participants with practical tools and skills for developing, leading and managing the implementation of innovative solutions to water resource challenges.
This degree is coordinated by the International WaterCentre (IWC) and co-delivered by world-leading practitioners from the water sector and lecturers from four leading Australian universities: The University of Western Australia, The University of Queensland, Monash University and Griffith University. So, while students enrol at The University of Queensland  they receive a co-badged degree from all four universities upon graduation.
International students come to Australia to study the program full-time (1.5 years) while domestic students can also study the program part-time/distance (3 years).
