    Hello, I am interested to learn MSC degree in water Resource Engineering and I have GPA 3.45 in BSc. How can I get full information?

    • Hyun Lee at - Reply

      Hello, you can check the University of Oslo if they offer MSC in Water Resource Engineering. I don’t think that they do when I did a quick search. Water Resource Management is such a niche subject that you might have trouble finding which institutions offer that subject. I highly recommend that you search these top universities in Norway and see if they offer it.
