  • Objectives
    The course aims to facilitate skills transfer from another relevant area of engineering or science to the study of groundwater hydrology.Learning outcomesGraduates from this award will have: * an understanding of the basic scientific concepts that underpin the occurrence, distribution, movement and quality of groundwater; * an understanding of the current pressing groundwater management issues and the technologies employed to deal with them; * a basic training in a range of commonly employed field, laboratory and computational methods used in the study of groundwater hydrology; and * the necessary communication, problem-based and critical thinking skills that will promote lifelong learning in their future careers.In addition, the Masters degree aims to provide students with training in research methodology and the preparation of a professional thesis or report - from project conception, design of methods, collection of results and their analysis, through to final conclusions and recommendations for future work. This will be achieved by way of a significant research/industry training project.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants who do not hold the Graduate Diploma in Science (Groundwater Hydrology) must normally hold a degree or equivalent qualification in any relevant discipline of science and engineering, from an approved tertiary institution. However, the Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
  • Academic Title
    Master of Science (Groundwater Hydrology)
  • Course description
    The Master of Science (Groundwater Hydrology) is a 72-unit program offered by the Faculty of Science and Engineering on a Commonwealth Supported basis. The course articulates with the Graduate Certificate in Science (Groundwater Hydrology) and the Graduate Diploma in Science (Groundwater Hydrology), and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards. Candidates who have completed either of these courses are awarded credit for related topics.
