Students from Kazakhstan will be able to get higher education at the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education in the Netherlands, the Kazakh Embassy in the Netherlands shared on its official Facebook page. The Institute is considered to be the largest institution in the field of water resources in the world. 

The university offers two-year courses for graduates and short-term ones in four main areas: Water Hazards, Risks and Climate; Water and Health; Water, Food and Energy; Water Resources; and Ecosystem Health. 

The study of these disciplines is possible through different profiles: Engineering and Hydrology, Management and Management, Environment, or Digital Technologies and Innovation. Part of the training is conducted online.

Additionally, students can create their individual study programs in accordance with specific interests and needs. Having completed two years of theoretical education, students join practical university research in the field of water resources and engineering.

The Netherlands is the undisputed leader in the field of water engineering. Part of the country's territory was obtained by draining a section of the North Sea and building a 30 km Afsluitendijk dam. In addition, local specialists, thanks to advanced technologies and high–tech approaches, were able to build a real miracle of modern architecture - an artificial Palm Island in the UAE. I am very glad that our students will be able to gain tremendous experience and quality education at this university»,
