    Water is a critical issue for the environment in Australia, the Australasian region and many other parts of the world. Effective use and management of water resources will continue to be one of the highest priorities for local, regional and federal authorities due to increased pressure from population growth, agricultural, commercial and industrial growth, and environmental and climate change.The major in Water Science provides students with the opportunity to develop their understanding of water resources, including surface water and groundwater in terrestrial and coastal environments. This is important in understanding interactions between, and impacts on, the hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere and lithosphere, all part of Earth Systems. Students completing this major will have the expertise to interpret quantitatively surface and groundwater flow and water quality data, design monitoring programs for water resources and provide the technical results to underpin effective management strategies and policies for the use of water resources.

    There are many career opportunities for students that complete this major. Those include positions in catchment management authorities, rural and urban water agencies, state and federal water departments and offices, agricultural organisations, minerals industry and environmental consulting in a wide range of companies. There are also many opportunities in Honours, post-graduate, research and academic positions. In all cases there are excellent opportunities in Australia and overseas.
