Environmental Sciences

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

In an environmental science program, a student learns about and studies the different ways the environment is being affected by human activity. Students learn about natural resources and how they can be maintained and protected through finding reasonable solutions that are practical to implement.

Sweden (Sverige) is the largest of the Nordic countries, with a population of about 9.5 million. It borders Norway and Finland and is connected to Denmark via the bridge of Öresund (Öresundsbron). Sweden has a strong tradition of being an open, yet discreet country.

Master's Programme in Environmental Chemistry

Umeå University offers a master of Environmental Chemistry. The training covers most environmental chemical topics and provides a deeper understanding of organic and inorganic environmental pollutants occurrence, origin and processes in biota, soil, air, and water, such as transport, distribution, transformation, and availability. The training primarily focuses on advanced methodologies for chemical analysis and modeling of environmental chemical and biogeochemical processes.

TeachingThe master program in Environmental Chemistry provides the compulsory courses "Environmental Chemistry" and "Measurement and Modeling" in which environmental chemical and biogeochemical issues and processes are presented along with methodologies for studying them. Among the elective courses, we recommend in particular toolbox courses where you have the opportunity to study instrumental techniques in detail. The program ends normally with a degree project of research-like nature. The training is given in English and in an international environment.... [-]

Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment at KTH

Students gain advanced competence in chemical engineering and obtain modern tools to analyse various processes, such as the production of biofuels, energy storage or the purification of drinking water – through the whole chain, from raw materials to products. The analyses often include aspects of chemicals, heat, electricity and environment.

A large number of elective courses allows students to tailor their education to meet personal and professional goals, and complementary skills such as problem-solving and teamwork are emphasised in many of the courses, as is written and oral communication. The courses are, therefore, to a large degree based on seminars and project assignments as a complement to traditional lectures.... [-]


Master in Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Campus Full time 2 years August 2018 Sweden Stockholm

The master’s programme in Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology aims to provide a deep understanding of how to design and operate state-of-the-art life science-based processes, with respect to product quality, sustainability and finance. The goal is to use cells and cell components such as enzymes in order to produce commodities including fine and bulk chemicals, pharmaceuticals or their building blocks, food, paper and pulp, energy, polymeric materials and clean water. The programme offers a comprehensive education in this vital and varied field, enabling students to prepare for careers in Sweden or internationally. [+]

Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology at KTH

The two-year programme comprises advanced courses regarding biotechnological tools used for the development of industrial processes, sustainable production of commodities and the impact of such processes on the environment and the society. The courses focus on five subject areas: cell-based process biotechnology, enzyme biotechnology, environmental biotechnology, medical applications of biotechnology and omics are programme offers. The student is able to tailor their education to create a unique profile and expertise. The courses are tailored to provide a holistic perspective and comprise both theoretical knowledge and practical application of theory. Skills such as problem-solving and project management as well as professional communication are emphasised on several courses. The programme curriculum is closely linked to the research undertaken at the School of Biotechnology and to the Bio/Pharmaceutical/Chemical industry.... [-]
