Masters in Environmental Engineering

The Master of Science in Environmental Engineering programme takes an interdisciplinary approach into the investigation of processes that control the earth and its environment. The programme will deliver all necessary knowledge and skills to seize opportunities presented by new developments in areas such as global cycles, biogeochemistry, sustainable technologies, waste and water treatment, environmental pollution assessment and remediation, and natural hazard. A special focus on environmental auditing and impact assessment shall be made, particularly in water, energy, noise and traffic auditing.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this Masters Programme the learners will be able to: 

  1. Evaluate the performance of an engineering system and incorporate innovations or implement new technologies
  2. Enhance environmental protection;
  3. Collect, construct and evaluate environmental impact data;
  4. Apply knowledge in the fields of energy efficiency, waste water treatment, marine protection and water resource management;
  5. Use logic and reasoning to identify the strengths and weaknesses of alternative environmental sustainability solutions.
