Singapore-Delft Water Alliance

Singapore-Delft Water Alliance (SDWA) is a joint Centre of Excellence for Water Knowledge which involves PUB (Singapore), National University Singapore and WL | Delft Hydraulics (The Netherlands). SDWA is hosted by National University Singapore, but provides research home to scientists and engineers from all partner organisations and is in part supported by National Research Foundation.
The main research objective of the alliance is to advance science and technology as well as test bed findings on relevant real-world problems. SDWA research agenda encompasses entire hydrological cycle, and is based four environmental observatories backed-up by extensive computing environment. In addition to research activities, SDWA actively pursues educational programmes. The educational programmes take form of short courses for professional engineers, new joint M.Sc./M. Eng. programme in collaboration with Technical University Delft and Ph.D. programmes.
The presentation will cover several on-going research programmes in SDWA in hydrology and oceanography.
