About

The graduate program started at Instituto de Pesquisas Hidráulicas (IPH) as a Master in Applied Hydrology from the Center of Applied that was created on 1968 from a cooperation project between the UFRGS and UNESCO. Registration of first students occurred in 1st March 1968, the official start date of the IPH graduate program.

From 1979, it continued as a graduate program in Civil Engineering / Major in Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation, after the recognition of the multidisciplinary aspect of the water field. The PhD program started in 1989, when the program was already a graduate program in Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation Engineering. After receiving students from diverse professional backgrounds, the program adopted in 2000 its actual denomination as graduate program in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering.

 

The Hydraulic Research Institute Instituto de Pesquisas Hidráulicas holds the Graduate Program in Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation, Master and PhD levels since 1969 and 1989, respectively.

The main research fields of the program, integrating water and environmental aspects are:

  • Study and matematical modelling of water processes.

  • Use and control of water resources;

  • Water resources management.

 

History

The graduate program started at Instituto de Pesquisas Hidráulicas (IPH) as a Master in Applied Hydrology from the Center of Applied that was created on 1968 from a cooperation project between the UFRGS and UNESCO.

The PhD program started in 1989, when the program was already a graduate program in Water Resources and Environmental Sanitation Engineering. After receiving students from diverse professional backgrounds, the program adopted in 2000 its actual denomination as graduate program in Water Resources and Environmental Engineering. In 2011, the program formed 372 Master students since 1970 and 117 PhD students since 1994.

 

Objectives

The overall goal of the Graduate Program in Water and Environmental Sanitation is the interdisciplinary approach to water issues using research and graduate education. To enable this approach, the program has a multidisciplinary team of professors, advisors and researchers with diverse background as engineering (civil, water, environmental, agronomic, mechanical and chemical), geology and biology.

The specific objectives the program are:

Training of qualified personnel for the exercise of teaching, research and development
Production of scientific and technological knowledge.

These specific objectives are achieved by the graduation of Masters and Doctors in Water and Environmental Sanitation as well as the scientific production contained in own Master and Doctoral theses and related publications.
