A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.
Environmental engineering refers to the branch of engineering that aims to bring long-lasting environmental solutions to global problems, such as a lack of clean water, pollution and waste treatment. Environmental engineers work with companies to develop solutions to these problems while also devising plans to prevent future contamination.
Asia is the world's largest and most populous continent, located primarily in the eastern and northern hemispheres. It covers 8.7% of the Earth's total surface area and comprises 30% of its land area.

Master in Environmental Engineering and ManagementIn an effort to develop technical and sustainable solutions in a rapidly changing world, the International Master Program in Environmental Engineering and Management focuses on two main areas:1) Environmental engineering and science2) Environmental management and planningThe program is designed to provide students with solid theoretical and systematic specialized knowledge as well as practical skills in the field of environmental engineering and management. In addition, the program aims to prepare students for the forefront of environmental engineering and management with a combination of coursework and research components. A key distinguishing feature of this program is its highly flexible curriculum, which enables students to pursue either an intensive or comprehensive course of study. Courses StructureStudents are required to take Chinese and specialized courses and to participate in internships and academic activities. The normal period of this program is 2-3 years and the course period is 0.5-1 year.The program provides a comprehensive professional education and opportunities for research in the areas of water/wastewater treatment, air pollution control, solid waste control, environmental chemistry, environmental microbiology, environmental planning and management, environmental policy, etc. The courses are scheduled to permit either intensive study in a single area or interdisciplinary study between areas.Comprehensive introductory courses are given to provide a common basis of understanding among those with varied backgrounds. Students select specialized courses in consultation with the graduate coordinator or a faculty advisor to meet his/her academic and career goals. An internship is designed for students to gain professional experiences in either a company or environmental protection organization in China. InternshipBased on the coursework, the Master program requires an internship/on-spot survey. During the on-spot survey, the student will design and conduct a scientific survey on China-specific issues with the help of supervisors. A diverse number of practice opportunities are available in water plants, wastewater treatment plants, waste treatment and recycling facilities, environmental companies, environmental protection bureaus, multinational corporations and other national or international organizations. During the on-spot survey, students will be exposed to methods and techniques used by natural and social scientists to identify, analyze and interpret environmental problems. The on-spot survey will usually be conducted in the summer after the first academic year.ThesisStudents are required to conduct an independent research project supervised by a faculty member with an interest in the particular topic or issue of their own research. A written Master thesis research proposal and a formal presentation are required in the second term. Students are required to submit a thesis in English with an executive summary in Chinese. A final oral defense is also required.Qualification of ApplicantsApplicant should have a B.S. degree, majoring in Environmental Science and Engineering, Environmental Economics and Management, Civil Engineering, or other relevant fields.

Master in Pulp and Paper Technology (PPT)
Due to the impact of globalization and the significance of the technology expansion, it became imperative to prepare students in pulp and paper technology in the Southeast Asia (SEA) region. This is especially important because of the strong presence of pulp and paper industries within this region. The government of Finland generously met this need resulting in the establishment in 1996 of the Pulp and Paper Technology Program (PPT) at the Prestigious AIT. The PPT program offers academic and professional curricula with pulp, paper, bio drying and bio refining specializations for candidates with science and engineering backgrounds within the multidisciplinary research and education environment of AIT. The PPT program along with continuing development of course benefiting industry and in cooperation with North American and European research and educational centers aims to channel information about relevant worldwide academic achievements into SEA pulp and paper and allied industries. These industries thus gain innovative ways to compete successfully within the global marketplace.The PPT program of SERD provides students with comprehensive understanding of the pulp and paper industry, its unit processes, environmental aspects and the sustainability of the processes and products. PTT is offering two master's degree options and eight certificate programs with specific focus on core areas of pulp and paper technology.... [-]

Master in Environmental Engineering and Management (EEM)
Environmental Engineering and Management (EEM) at AIT began in 1964 with the need for sanitary engineering to address the problems of providing adequate water supplies and sanitation facilities. The overall program looks for solutions to environmental problems including wastewater treatment and disposal systems; air pollution engineering and management; solid and hazardous wastes; waste minimization and life cycle assessment; environmental impact assessment and management; and environmental toxicology. The three major focal areas are Environmental Technology and Management (ETM); Environmental Toxicology, Technology and Management (EETM); and Water and Wastewater Engineering (WWE).The EEM has produced over 1,100 master and 90 PhD graduates from 40 countries in Asia and beyond. ETM emphasizes a systems approach to managing the environment, including the interrelated roles of industry and government agencies. Some of the subjects covered in the specialization of air pollution, solid wastes, industrial pollution control, hazardous wastes control and minimization, environmental impact assessment and waste audits. ETTM is a multidisciplinary inter-university program (Chulabhorn Research Institute, Mahidol University and AIT) with assistance from a team of international experts. This program is a combination of toxicology and other related health sciences, biotechnology and environmental engineering. WWE responds to the need to produce engineers who have specialized in the planning, design, operation and management of water supply, wastewater treatment, and disposal systems. Specializations include water supply and sewerage system engineering, water quality management, water and wastewater treatment systems, environmental sanitation systems, groundwater contamination, waste recycling and resource recovery, natural and ecological treatment systems....
