The project partners have started the process of creating a combined global M.Sc program on “Water Security and Global Change” which will be hosted under the umbrella of the ABCD-Centre. The new M.Sc program will combine the expertise of all project partners towards an integrated and holistic approach, serving the needs of regional, national and international stakeholders. Existing modules will provide a baseline for the new program. It will have a modular structure that includes a mobility window for study abroad and options for specializations. Part of the joint effort will be the coordination of student mobility as well as the development of communication-, dissemination- and marketing strategies and their implementation.
Modules of the M.Sc program shall be taught by experts from the respective institutions. Internships and Master theses will be conducted in close cooperation with selected companies, governmental agencies, and NGOs. To open the new joint global M.Sc program to talented students from the Global South, scholarships are awarded to participate in the program. Mobility options for Master students from the Global North will allow them to spend up to one semester at either IIT Madras or AIT Bangkok as an integral part of the newly developed course. The Centre enables flexible teaching scholarships to enrich the new M.Sc program.
