Helped improving knowledge, technological and management skills ….

This UMCSAWM’s Master’s program helped improving our knowledge, technological and management skills while we had excellent guidance to complete this program.

The course indeed provided us more than what we expected. We learnt research and exploring methodologies, developed our communication and presentation skills, knowledge on GIS applications, gained field experiences, and followed an approach based on real-life water related, technical and engineering problem solving introduced through Problem Based Learning for each and every module. The PBL is the most important and unique part of this course.

Gained up to date knowledge while learning at UMCSAWM ….

Afghanistan is a mountainous country with a lot of water resources but, unfortunately lack of hydraulic knowhow, proper structures and technical expertise have caused us to face numerous problems in water sectors. Hence, as an Afghan engineer, I intend apply the up to date knowledge I have gained while learning at UMCSAWM for future development of my country.

I never thought I would be meeting such committed and hardworking teachers in my entire life. They honestly taught me, encouraged me, inspired me, and energized me to complete this course successfully. As a result, I studied hard therefore I have gained maximum possible thorough the course.

I acquired new knowledge on water resources engineering and management where the contents of program are related to my work experience. Due to the expertise gained during the period of study at UMCSAWM, I will be in a better position to deliver my services.
