Master Water Engineering and Water Management

The master will provide students with shared theoretical and practically-oriented knowledge in the field of water engineering and water management.

Students in the program should acquire the ability to design water engineering projects and to realize these projects efficiently in line with the principles of sustainability (integration of energy efficiency and mass/energy valorisation).

Aims of the program

The master focuses on chemical engineering and hydrology applied to unit operations of water treatment and water sciences (aquatic system and its preservation). The purpose of the lectures is concerned with biological and chemical reactors for pollution removal, unit operations of separation for the high quality water production (membrane separation, adsorption…), hydrology and ecology for the management of aquatic system. In addition, students will follow courses on international regulations, environmental management and project management to be able to face water-related societal, governmental and industrial stakes. Along the two years of formation, the student will have strength interactions with industrial partners and research laboratories.

This Master is teach by INP - ENSEEIHT and INSA

Program content

Semester 1:
Scientific basis, cultural integration, linguistics and methodology.

Semester 2:
Core courses on waste water treatment and waste water management including energy and mass valorisation

Semester 3:
Water production and water resource management including desalination and water reuse

Semester 4:
Graduation Internship (5-6 months) in academic Laboratories or in Industrial companies.

The fisrt semester is a transition semester with 80h of french courses. If necessary or wished , additional Intensive french courses are available in the summer.

Research Institutions & Industrial Partners

Industrial applications of the program are related to desalination, drinking water production, waste water treatment, water reuse, industrial water treatment, eco-conception of processes.

INSA is member of the national cluster of Excellence WATER and of the regional cluster of Water, Sensor and Membrane. The laboratories involved in this master are ranked A+, a plus for future students whose education will be closely linked to the research.

Job opportunities

Job in industries in the environmental sector (water/ air/waste treatment eco-industries) or in various other fields (chemistry, petrochemistry, food, pharmacy and cosmetics, specialised materials) to take into account environmental constraints (eco-processes).
