The (biennial) Master's Degree in Soil and Water Management began in the academic year 2008/09, organised by the University of Lleida (coordinator), the University of Barcelona, the Autonomous University of Barcelona and the University of Navarra. The course is structured according to the guidelines and recommendations arising from the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). The adaptation to the EHEA (Bologna) is facilitated by the experience gained during previous years of collaboration with these universities in the frame of doctoral studies.
The Master Soil and Water Management offers to the students multidisciplinary training in the field of earth sciences, particularly in hydrology and soil science applied to the sustainable use of natural resources, both in agricultural and forest environments and in the conservation of the quality and quantity of water and soil resources.
Teaching is delivered by recognized specialists from the four universities, in geology, chemistry, biology and soil science, and applied in agricultural engineering, forestry and hydrology.
These studies lead to the academic title of Master in Soil and Water Management.
