Nowadays, environmental protection and sustainability within the chemical processing and energy industries are major concerns. In the near future, experts predict that the energy demand will drastically increase, especially because of the spectacular industrial and economic growth of the emerging countries. In such a context, meeting the energy needs of society without serious adverse impacts on humanity and the environment is a world challenge.
Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy at KTH
Whilst generating energy with minimal environmental impact falls within the broad scope of engineering, managing the demand for energy is in the realm of economics and social sciences. In most cases, these issues are interrelated, and global solutions and strategies have to be found.
The original feature of the ME3 joint master’s program is to combine Energy and Environmental Process Engineering with Management and Social Sciences. It aims at offering a well-balanced education to future engineers and managers having the appropriate skills to resolve environmental and energy issues through an integrated approach, combining technological development and innovations together with the consideration of human, social and economic constraints.
The ME3 joint master’s program is thus addressed to engineers and managers, who will work in Europe or in any other regions of the world, to monitor complex social-technical systems related to the environment and energy.
The universities participating in the joint master’s program ME3 are:
- Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), Budapest, Hungary
- Institute Mines-Telecom (IMT Atlantique), Nantes, France
- KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
- The Technical University of Madrid, (UPM), Madrid, Spain
