MSc in Environmental Technology
Institute of Mathematics and Natural Sciences offers two postgraduate engineering specializations in environmental technology. We aim to provide motivated students with knowledge and skills necessary to become responsible water managers and engineers.
Students that want to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry, or among the many offshore related service and research companies, are offered a full time MEng in Offshore Environmental Engineering. The philosophy of this program is to combine courses in offshore oil and gas exploration, production technologies and environmental management. The program is suited for students that are interested in practical technological and administrative competences for sound environmental management in the offshore industries. Successful candidates will qualify for key positions in environmental engineering and management.
Our MEng specialization in Water Science and Technology is offered students that want to focus on aquatic chemistry and ecology, and technologies for water and wastewater treatment. Being more natural science and research based, the program provides students with fundamental and advanced competences in aquatic chemistry, environmental biotechnology and water process engineering. Our approach is to use fundamental mass and energy balances for design and operation of water and wastewater processing technologies, and system analysis of pollutants in natural water systems. We encourage students to identify adequate available technologies in relation to the ecological mechanisms of receiving environments. Successful candidates qualify for positions in governmental and private research institutions, public and private environmental management and technical consultants, and as environmental engineers within the industry.
Both specializations are based on taught courses that include compulsory and elective subjects. Students use electives and the final thesis to immerse into particular subjects of individual interest. We encourage students to check out our areas of research for inspiration and the research facilities we offer.
