The proposed consortium is developing a Joint Degree Master Programme entitled Water Reuse and Desalination Engineering (WaRDE) according to the principles of the Bologna Declaration. The new envisaged programme has as main goal the education of professionals able to take decisions considering the operational, technological and social aspects in Water Management; specifically water reuse and desalination from an integrated engineering perspective by covering technological, engineering and scientific related subjects. The main objectives of the project are:- Definition of an innovative programme, paying special attention to information technologies, a subject that is on the forefront of the environmental concerns. New economic and urban developments will require a sustainable approach for safe water supply.- Give response to an increasing need in present society for continuous water supply either at domestic and industrial scale by identifying the common ground and foundations required to fit the learning skills and competencies expected by the scientific and labour market in this sector.- Give a European dimension to the Master programme. This effort becomes of major relevance since WaRDE is essentially a matter of global concern. Promotion and intensification of the student and teachers mobility will contribute to provide this essential trans-national view.- Increase the volume of cooperation between higher education institutions and enterprises by setting the proper links and communications channels. Professional sector, bodies and associations will be involved both during the curriculum development (programme advising and quality assessment) and delivery (seminars, real case-study, practicum)All efforts will be done in order to accreditate the programme and to implement the Join Master degree after the Project ends. The duration is two-year (120 ECTS). Although English will be the major language, much attention will be given to local languages.
