Environmental Engineering

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.

China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state located in East Asia. It is the world's most populous country, with a population of over 1.35 billion.

Best Masters in Environmental Engineering in China 2017. The ERE programme An international Master’s Degree Programme in “Earth Resources Engineering - ERE” (“Laurea Magistrale” according to the Italian regulation), is offered by ALMA MATER STUDIORUM – University of Bologna. According to the Bologna process, the Laurea Magistrale is equivalent to a Master of Science. The program is open to students of any Nationality. The central theme of ERE is the conscientious stewardship of our finite natural resources, namely minerals, fuels, energy, water, and land. Students taking ERE Programme will attain a broad background in environmental engineering and earth resources covering water resources, pollution prevention, energy, resource economics, recycling, waste and biowaste valorization, alternative and renewable raw materials, reclamation, and health. The main goal of the Master’s degree is to educate professionals with the necessary in-depth scientific and technical knowledge to be successful in the field of environmental engineering and in a multi-cultural educational environment. The programme is intended to prepare students with firm technical bases while nurturing decision-making and leadership potential. It prepares graduates to practice their profession at an advanced level and with a unique exposure to an international environment to better understand the global issues of environmental engineering. The organization All courses and activities are in English. The programme duration is two years (4 semesters). The programme has core modules and elective courses. A committee will help students to select the courses to build their own curriculum. In order to obtain the Master’s Degree (Laurea Magistrale), the students must successfully complete the courses and defend the final dissertation, for a minimum of 120 Credits (ECTS).
