The Collaborative Water Program promotes the development of interdisciplinary perspectives on water. This unique program allows students to complement their chemical engineering training with core courses that focus on integrated water management.

The Collaborative Water Program is co-ordinated and supported by the Water Institute and delivered jointly by 11 departments and schools from across all six University of Waterloo Faculties. By studying complex water problems as part of an interdisciplinary team, students develop a broad knowledge of various water-related fields, develop connections with peers and identify opportunities for interdisciplinary water research and innovation.

Graduates, with skills to communicate across disciplines and within interdisciplinary teams, will be leaders in the water sector.

In the Department of Chemical Engineering, the Collaborative Water Program is available to master’s and doctoral students whose program includes a substantial focus on water. Applicants must be accepted under the supervision of a faculty member in the department.

Consult the Graduate Studies Academic Calendar for specific degree requirements.
