Description / Content

  • The MSc. Environmental engineering and Management is run in the Department of Energy and Petroleum Engineering, under the School of Engineering.. The programme aims to provide advanced training for both engineers and scientists concerned with protecting the environment and human health through the provision of services such as water supply, sanitation, wastewater treatment and municipal solid waste and hazardous waste management, resource recovery from waste materials, etc
  • The postgraduate programme in Environmental Engineering and Management is to provide students with the knowledge towards the interactions between humans and their environment and the planning, design, and control of systems for environmental quality management for water, land, and air environments
  • The Master’s programme has a strong focus on research that is accompanied by an excellent international reputation. This is especially present in the second year, where students work side by side with university researchers, thus gaining unique insights and experience in modern scientific methodologies.
    Engineers with expertise in sustainable energy management are multi-disciplinarily trained professionals. They are able to pursue a successful career not only in academics but also in an industrial environment
