This non-thesis Master’s in IWRM is offered by the Department of Bioresource Engineering. Students are offered the unique opportunity to study the various biophysical, environmental, legal, institutional, and socio-economic aspects of water use and management in an integrated context. The integrated perspective ensures that social, economic, environmental as well as technical dimensions are all taken into account in the management and development of water resources.

Interdisciplinary knowledge is emphasized, and a broad perspective of water resources management issues is promoted through a wide range of courses offered by collaborating departments and faculties at McGill University.

Admission Requirements and Procedures

Candidates are required to have a Bachelor's degree but this does not need to be an engineering degree.

Non-engineering students with a demonstrated interest in water resources management are encouraged to apply, as students have been admitted to the program with undergraduate degrees in geography, international development studies, sociology, anthropology, mathematics, environmental studies, biology, natural resources management, and engineering among others. Candidates are required to have a minimum equivalent cumulative grade point average of 3.0/4.0 or 3.2/4.0 during the last two years of full time university study.
