Thankfully, I have received several offers in the following subjects. However, since I equally love each of them, I am still hesitant about which one to choose! Thus, I decided to base my judgement among them from a career perspective, and I am hoping you guys help me to clear the air...

The courses are:
MSc in Hydrology
MSc in Water and Wastewater Treatment
MSc in Water Resources Management

Unpatiently looking forward to hearing from you

Best regards,
Maher

Hey, just giving this thread a little bump in the hopes someone will see it and reply

Have you found University Connect yet? It's super useful for finding other people on your course/at your university!

Which universities are those courses for?

Hydrology and Water Resources Management will have wider career prospects in my opinion compared to Water and wastewater treatment.

The Water and Wastewater treatment Msc is very specific and unless that's the exact career you're going into, then it will sound limited to potential employers.

Hydrology will have a MUCH wider range of career prospects because its the complete study of the movement, distribution and quality of water on Earth as well as other planets. A masters in that will sound more impressive to be quite frank as it implies a wider range of skills and specialism.

At the end of the day, its up to you. You say that you're equally interested in all the courses, so you're basing your decision on career prospects.
I'd say go for Hydrology as it'll give you a wider range of career prospects. If you decide not to go into water management for example, then a degree in Hydrology will still leave many open doors, but the other degrees are more specific.

waste water, larger job market,
otherwise if one of the courses does modelling go for that as I find most grads don't have modelling experience - GIS is very important too
(feel free to ask me for any more info - I'm a Consultant Hydrologist)
