The program was established in 2001 and targeted mainly the economist, social specialists, lawyers and decision makers to capture integration of theses sciences in relation to water resources
M. Sc. Programs by courses
One of the UNESCO-CWR main objectives is to develop human skills within the water resources community and to ensure that water professionals have the skills, knowledge and capacities to manage water resources and their related infrastructures in order to realize their full potentials and achieve sustainable development.
The M.Sc program at UNESCO-CWR started in 2001 via establishment of three Master Degree programmes (courses and partial fulfillment research) in the following fields:
2. Water Resources Development and Management (WRDM)
3. Environmental Engineering.
In line with its vision and objectives UNESCO-CWR has, started since 2016 to improve and revitalize the Postgraduate Programmes, i.e. both the M.Sc and PhD programs. The main thrust on this document is concerned with restructuring of the M.Sc. program in sense that to be delivered in three semesters instead of the current program of two semesters plus partial fulfillment research.
The new three programs are:
1. Water Resources Development and Management Program
2. Environmental Planning and Management Program
3. Hydrology and Environmental Engineering Program
4. Irrigation Engineering Program
The vision of the M.Sc. Program at UNESCO-CWR is to be a regional hub for capacity building, knowledge transfer, and technology advancement in the field of water resources and be an a proactive contributor to the country’s progress toward water resources issues and sustainable development.
The mission of the M.Sc. Program aims towards providing excellence in leadership by elevating the professional practice of water resources and related subjects through advanced certification, continuing education, and ethical practice.

4. natural resources;
5. any other accepted related disciplines
The targeted groups in the Hydrology and Environmental Engineering Program (HEE) are the holder of B.Sc. degree (or postgraduate diploma) in
1. civil engineering,
2. environmental engineering
3. water resources engineering
4. any other accepted related disciplines.
The Irrigation Engineering (IE) Master of science degree programme is opened to applicants with a background in civil engineering, agriculture engineering, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering or hydrology.
