Welcome to the School of Water
Sectorial training in the best hands
The Suez Group, with 80,410 employees, supplies drinking water to 91 million inhabitants, provides sewerage services to 63 million and collects waste from 57 million people worldwide.
Based on this experience, on the knowledge acquired and on the talent of its people, the School of Water was created in 2014.
The School of Water is the institution created by Suez to share and transfer knowledge on water and the environment. Its activity involves training both for companies, administrations and professionals from the world of water and for the citizens in the general through awareness-raising campaigns.
The School of Water, endorsed by over 165 years of experience in the sector, offers society, companies, institutions and participants in our programmes knowledge on sustainable water management, offering them a unique and excellent learning experience.
Be a global benchmark in knowledge, training and talent applied to water management and natural resources using innovative methodologies and technologies.
The training programmes cover all spheres of the complete water cycle, using various face-to-face and online methodologies, which provide a unique learning experience and immediate applicability of the skills developed on long courses (master’s degrees and postgraduate programmes) and specialized technical courses, official Vocational Training and continuing education or educational actions adapted to different groups, whether children or adults.
The School of Water’s methodological approach, in any of its forms, contains elements of learning by doing, which implies learning through experience. The training includes carrying out activities in which students learn by applying the knowledge acquired through the resolution of real cases from the sector or undertaking either individual or group projects.
The higher education students moreover join the School of Water’s Alumni community, made up of all the current and former master’s degree and postgraduate students. This meeting place allows them to stay in contact, continue to develop their career, and keep their knowledge of the water and environment sector up-to-date through exclusive access to the Water Resources Centre (CREA). All this can be done from any geographic location, since the majority of the services are available on line.
Our approach involves combining the academic rigour offered by prestigious universities and technical schools with the international expertise that we have accumulated over more than 165 years in complete water cycle management.
