Environmental technologies are experiencing very strong growth and are a megatrend in technological development. For example, the environment industry had a 4% share of GDP in Germany in 2005 and it is expected to rise to 16% of GDP in 2030 The fast growth is fueled by innovation as companies develop new products to satisfy societal demands.The Nordic countries are world leaders in the development of Environmental Policy and Technology. The N5T universities are ideally positioned to offer the education and tools needed for future engineers to take advantage of this Green Megatrend. Thus, a major aim of the programme is to prepare the student for a professional career through the integration of professional experience with the degree programs. This will ultimately increase quality and competitiveness, study motivation and employability.

After completing the Water Resource Management study track a student is able to:
- recognize the key thematic components in water resources engineering
- understand the principles of the hydrological cycle and flow of water in natural and constructed environments, including quantitative estimates of the water fluxes
- explain and apply key technical methods (e.g. modelling, statistics, GIS) related to water and environmental engineering
- deal with the uncertainty and different orders of magnitude related to the measurements, data analysis and modeling
