The Doctoral Degree on River Restoration and Management from Instituto Superior Técnico is a joint institutional partnership that aims to gather a well reputed teaching corps with high skills in the subjects to be taught, supported by a stronghold of theoretical knowledge and application experiences.
Three institutions from the Technical University of Lisbon: IST, the Faculty of Agronomy and the Faculty of Architecture, and two foreign institutions, the Univ. of California, Berkeley and the Univ. Politécnica de Madrid, agreed to join their efforts to put together this Doctoral Course.
This Ph.D. program intends to develop the scientific knowledge in the fields of restoration and management of fluvial processes and ecological quality, thus contributing to the sustainable development of human societies and the conservation of natural resources. The emphasis of the course will be on Mediterranean-type rivers.
The career opportunities for doctors in River Restoration and Management are not only the teaching and research in the area, but also the institutions of public and private sector with interests in river management and in the design and implementation of river restoration projects and monitoring.
