Euro-Korea Hydroinformatics

The project Euro-Korea Msc Hydroinformatics Engineering (EK-HYDRO) has the main objective to contribute to the education and training of future scientists and executive engineers in the EU and the Republic of Korea in the fields of modelling and managing projects in hydro-technologies and environment through an innovative master degree. These professionals have vocation to assist local and regional communities, national and international entities, public services and to be in volved in private companies. The project, in this light, responds to the growing demand on such qualified professionals from the major leading enterprises in the hydroinformatic and water management field in the EU and Korea.

The consortium consists of 4 EU institutions:

University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis France (UNS)

Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU)

Technical University of Catalonia Spain (UPC)

Warsaw University of Technology Poland (WUT)

as well as 3 Korean institutions:

Incheon National University (INU)

Chungbuk National University (CBNU)

Seoul National University (SNU)

Main Activities

The main activities carried out in the project are:

  • Joint Master course (awarding double degrees) which involves the definition and setting up of mutually important teaching modules and courses;
  • Student mobility arrangement with the goal that 20 EU students and 36 Korean students will be mobilized over the project life;
  • Teaching staff mobility arrangement with the goal that 16 EU scholars and 9 Korean scholars will be mobilized over the project life;
  • Building-up organisational framework in terms of agreements on tuition waiver and recognition or transfer of credit.

Implementing an innovative master course focused on needs of an emerging professional sector.

All partner institutions are well established in Hydroinformatics engineering and related fields in terms of education, research and professional training.

All of them possess rich experiences in organizing student mobility for study and work placement abroad, and are engaged in the pursuit of educational excellence in an international context.

The initiative has been explored upon years of cooperation among partner institutions of various kinds of academic activities.

All partners are committed to develop their existing organizational structures by this joint commitment to act as an entity. Further participation of enterprises, industries, and public entities ensures the long-term sustainability of this multilateral cooperation. In addition the consortium aims to develop innovative ICT-based methods and tools for pedagogic practice and service in Hydroinformatics engineering, which can be applied to other collaborative education and training initiatives and easily duplicated and implemented in other disciplines.
