News - Success Story

 Succes story from one of our Master's Students

Daniel Kibirige is a water engineer from Limpopo, South Africa. In 2011, he travelled to Europe on an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to study a Master's degree in Water Resources. Back in Johannesburg, he wants to apply these lessons and contribute to a more sustainable and ecologically-friendly water resource management system in his native South Africa.
