Abstract

The Danish water sector is in dire need for competence development to accommodate the changes in Danish water governance (decentralisation,privatisation and larger entities) and the implementation of relevant EuropeanUnion (EU) directives. In parallel, the number of international students enrolled in the two-year MSc programme in Environmental Engineering at DTU Environmentor visiting in short-term stays is increasing. Since these students come with awide range of different backgrounds there is a clear need for adaptation and development of the existing courses. In response to these needs, DTUEnvironment has created an e-learning platform called Water Education (WatEdu) scheduled to be operational in 2011.
