Program Description

Environmental Engineering, Master of Science (Technology) (2 years)

  • Multidisciplinary studies combine process engineering to environmental engineering
  • The program provides skills to solve environmental problems and challenges
  • Program’s industry-branch-independent, the phenomena-based approach provides excellent skills in different areas of environmental engineering

This 2-year master’s program with its industry-branch-independent, phenomena-based approach provides students excellent talents to apply their learned skills into the different areas of environmental engineering.

The studies contain courses on the processes occurring in the different branches of the process industry and on the phenomena related to energy systems and cleaner production methods and give the students abilities to control, optimize, design and develop processes.

Further, the program will educate the students on the methods for water and wastewater treatment, natural phenomena, and processes related to water resources and water engineering, the causes of environmental loads, and the different methods, tools, and technologies in controlling and reducing harmful environmental effects.

Students applying for the program must possess a bachelor’s degree or equivalent in a suitable field of engineering, and applicants have to choose their preferred field of specialization (major), study option already when applying to the program. Each option will provide its graduates with a specific set of skills and know-how, therefore each has its own criteria for the applicants.

The Master’s Program in Environmental Engineering includes three different study options:

  • Industrial Environmental Engineering
  • Energy Systems
  • Hydrology and Water Management

The objective of the Master's Program of Environmental Engineering is to train creative and co-operative academic professionals for engineering careers and as experts in their own area of specialization.

Possible titles include

  • Researcher
  • Specialist
  • Chemical process Designer
  • Environmental Engineer
