The programme provides young professionals and scientists an international perspective on integrated resources management approaches in dry lands and allows them to gain practical experience in different dry land countries.
The MSc Programme will offer two components:
1) a short intensive course
2) field research leading to the development of a Master’s thesis.
Throughout the programme, a strong emphasis will be placed on multidisciplinary approaches.
The three weeks course work will focus on the international dimension of dry land management and a range of research methods.
An international team of selected experts from all partners and their networks will provide a balanced mix of lectures and seminars.
The six month field and laboratory research will be conducted under the supervision of one of the programme partners.
Upon completion of the MS Programme, students will receive a Master’s Degree from their home university and a Certificate from UNU.
Typically, the graduates from the MS Programme serve in government departments and agencies (e.g., those dealing with agriculture, forestry, natural resources management, and combating desertification), teaching positions in institutions of higher learning, research institutions and doctoral research programmes.
A limited number of Fellowships will be provided to qualified candidates from developing countries on a competitive basis.
These fellowships will cover the travel costs between the country of origin and IRA, CAREERI, ICARDA and TU, as needed.
