Erasmus Mundus - ECOHYD Scholarships

The ERASMUS MUNDUS MASTER OF SCIENCE IN ECOHYDROLOGY (ECOHYD) gathers the expertise from a consortium constituted to include complementary expertises from four European HEI (Portugal, Poland, Netherlands and Germany) and one Third Country University (Argentina). Expertise on estuarine and coastal ecosystems Ecohydrology will be provided by the University of Algarve (Portugal); expertise in freshwater and urban ecohydrology will be provided by the University of Lodz (Poland); and the engineering and management components will be provided by UNESCO-IHE (Netherlands) and University of Kiel (Germany).

The course will have a duration of 2 years and will be provided in English.The Course will start with two cohorts of 15 students, at the University of Algarve and at the University of Lodz. This first part of the Master Programme will account as 50 ECTS. Students will then make a second mobility, to the University of La Plata or to Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries (Croatia), students will understand and evaluate the geographical and climatic differences needed to consider in the development of Ecohydrology solutions. This component of the formation is valuated in 10 ECTS. Then students will do a third mobility to the University of Kiel or IHE Delft for acquire competences in aquatic management and aquatic engineering. This component is valuated in 30 ECTS. Course will be completed with the realization of a Master Thesis, valuing 30 ECTS that students develop in chosen European HEI of the consortium. To the students with positive evaluation after completion of all requirement will be granted a MULTIPLE degree by the Consortium Institutions.
