Description: Master of Integrated Water Management The challenges facing water managers across the world increasingly require leaders able to cross social, environmental and technological boundaries, to combine disciplinary knowledge, and to use theory to inform effective practice. The Master of Integrated Water Management (MIWM) is one of the few programs in the world that takes a truly integrated approach to water management, bringing together social, economic, ecological, and engineering dimensions to effectively address complex sustainable development challenges that have water at their core. The program is led by the International WaterCentre and enrolled through Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia. The program is delivered by lecturers from the International WaterCentre, Griffith University, The University of Queensland and Monash University along with leading practitioners from private consulting and selected university partners internationally. From 2021 the program will be delivered in blended and fully online modes for both domestic and international students. Blended delivery will involve a number of face to face field-trips and intensives in Australia and internationally complemented by online delivery. Fully online delivery will involve online classes complemented by individual and team-based learning support. Also, from 2021 the program will be available for both domestic and international students to study either full-time or part-time. Combined with the option to study via blended or fully online modes the MIWM will be available for those who wish to learn by committing themselves fully to study or to learn whilst they work from wherever they live.
