Bachelor of Science in Water Resources and Geo-Environmental Sciences (BS) - (106 Credits)

Conscious of the importance of water issues for Lebanon and the Arab world, AUT started a unique BS program in Water Resource Sciences that means to prepare Lebanese students to work in all areas of water

science and management. They will acquire essential expertise in water quality and treatment, water law and conflict resolution, and other areas necessary to manage water resources efficiently.

This unique program has the support of Tannourine Water company which ensures internships and training as well as scholarships and of the Ministry of Energy and Water (click here to know more ) so students have access to information concerning projects on regional and national levels and can share in them.

AUT has joined international organizations such as Global Water Partnership which is an organization based in Stockholm, Sweden and whose mission is to support the sustainable development and management of water resources at all levels (click here for more info).
