You will learn to design eco-friendly and eco-efficient solutions, which point in a green and future-oriented direction.

You will obtain the most recent knowledge in the disciplines of Life Cycle Assessment, Global Environmental Challenges and sustainability, Eco-Efficient Engineering (including concepts of Circular Economy), Waste Management, Material Flow Analysis and Urban Water Management.

Programme structure

This is a two-year master programme. To study a master degree in Environmental Technology you must have a relevant bachelor degree (three years of the previous study at university level).

At the master programme, you choose an academic profile; the area in which you want to specialise.

Many different career options

With a master degree in Environmental Technology, you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. The degree qualifies you for work in, for example, the restoration of the natural environment or as a consultant in environmental issues and waste management.

With a master degree you will be qualified for jobs as, for example:

• Project worker or manager in consulting engineering companies
• Consultant in local and regional governments
• Caseworker in public administration
• Engineer at environmental or development departments.

It is also possible to continue on a three-year research programme which will lead to a PhD degree. Another option is to study an industrial research programme which is carried out in close cooperation with a company where you are employed.

Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Environmental Technology).

Study environment

Each year more than 1500 international students from all over the world choose to study at the University of Southern Denmark, so you will become part of a lively international student environment.

We believe that engineers of today must have a global perspective and experience and we encourage international as well as Danish students to spend one or two semesters abroad on an internship or as exchange students.

Faculty of Engineering has adopted a student-centred approach to learning, and teaching is based on problem-based project work. Students participate significantly in class and carry out project work in small teams. Learn more about the study environment from the students themselves.
