Overview of Post Graduate Programs

The Institute offers post graduate degrees for the professionals and fresh graduates with the objectives of training and enhancing the knowledge and skills in planning and management of land and water resources, and widening their perspectives on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM). Since IWRM is a multi-disciplinary process, a multi-disciplinary course curriculum is pursued in the program to generate holistic understanding of water resources systems with a good blend of engineering, agricultural, socio-economic and environmental analyses. The diversity of background of the students provides a unique learning opportunity through exchange of ideas and information within a group having the same goal but different perspectives and experiences.
