PhD students to get schooled on climate change

From June 3 to 12, over 30 top PhD scholars from 15 countries will gather at the University of Waterloo to participate in the Water Institute’s inaugural international summer school. 

Scholars from leading water institutions, such as the University of Queensland, ETH Zurich, Beijing Normal University, China University of Geosciences, Hohai University and Michigan State University, will join University of Waterloo colleagues in studying interdisciplinary perspectives on climate change and water security in urbanized watersheds.

“The Water Institute’s inaugural summer school offers a unique opportunity for PhD scholars to learn from an impressive array of Waterloo and visiting professors, and to interact and network with colleagues from around the world, in addressing key water security challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective” says Water Institute Executive Director Roy Brouwer.

Some 22 Water Institute professors from all 6 Faculties will join visiting professors from the University of Michigan and the University of Saskatchewan to deliver an integrated set of lectures, field excursions and laboratory tours during the 10 day event. Specific programming will cover the following key research themes:
