This practical, industry-focused course can help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need to improve water quality and supply in Australian and international communities.
Access to safe water is critical for economic growth, agriculture and food production, sustainable development and poverty reduction. However, many communities and governments now struggle to supply safe water and effectively manage their water resources.
If you are a recent graduate looking to launch your water quality career, or you are a practising water scientist or engineer, this course can position you as an expert in water chemistry. It is especially relevant to those who have studied chemistry, hydrology, water-related engineering courses, agriculture, environmental science or other related fields.
There is a growing need for water scientists who understand the chemistry of water. In this course, you can build advanced chemistry skills and specialised knowledge in water biology, microbiology, ecotoxicology, engineering, hydrogeology and environmental geoscience. Your studies will focus on water treatment, sanitation, water recycling and the sustainable supply of safe drinking water.
This practical, industry-focused course can help you develop the skills and knowledge you will need to improve water quality and supply in Australian and international communities. You will have access to high-tech science labs, modern equipment and collaborative learning spaces across the campus and within the purpose-built Resources and Chemistry Precinct. You will also benefit from Curtin’s high reputation in water quality research, which has led to led to millions of dollars in funding, local and global research alliances and the recruitment of high calibre industry experts.
