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.... [-]


Master in Management and Engineering of Environment and Energy ME3

KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Campus Full time 2 years August 2019 Sweden Stockholm

Nowadays, environmental protection and sustainability within the chemical processing and energy industries are of major concerns. In a 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. [+]

The master’s programme in Chemical Engineering for Energy and the Environment will offer students a comprehensive education and the engineering tools necessary to solve the future challenges of how to best use our energy and finite natural resources.

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 Environmental Science

Stockholm University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2019 Sweden Östermalm

Developing solutions to our environmental challenges such as climate change, pollution, air and water quality, requires people who both understand problems holistically and can tackle them at the microscopic level. A Master of Environmental Science degree from Stockholm University will give you those tools, through an education in either Atmospheric Science, Biogeochemistry or Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry. The courses in Atmospheric Science and Biogeochemistry will provide the fundamental knowledge of the composition and functioning of the environmental compartments: the atmosphere – the freshwater and ocean – and the land systems.
