The studies cover a period of four semesters. The first and second semester take place in Hanoi, the third semester in Cologne. The fourth semester is dedicated to the master thesis.
The program consists of basic modules, like “Management of Water Resources Systems”, “Water Resources Economics and Governance”, ”International Cooperation and Development” and “Project and Business Management” with the aim of providing an overview on water management, economics, project management and the regional and institutional context. In addition, the participants select ten specialized electives related to topics of water management emphasizing the particular situation and experiences in the South Asian region.

The fourth semester will focus on the preparation of the master thesis. Internships and research stays predominantly in a South Asian country, if possible together with a local institution or company, guarantee the practical orientation of the master research. Vietnamese students should have the opportunity to realize their research in Germany if funding is secured. Tutors pay particular attention that the knowledge acquired in the first three semesters is applied in the individual projects.

Field visits
Field visits play an important role as the exposure to real projects and to relevant institutions is of highest importance in order to meet the objectives of the master program.

Projects
In the module “Project I – III” students will have the chance to apply the new knowledge received in the basic or specialized modules to an interdisciplinary case study.
The participants should come from diverse technical or managerial backgrounds. The team projects should be related to real projects visited during the field trips or to projects suggested through other partners of the network.
