Water technology can be applied to the most urgent global challenges. A blue battery, for example, stores energy using only water and salt. Innovative membranes may be used to improve sea water desalination, and micro-pollutants can be removed with smart UV-technology. This unique joint degree in Water Technology teaches you to develop and apply water-related innovations.
