Masters in Environmental Engineering

Environmental Engineering is concerned with the study of clean technologies that have no or as little impact on the environment as possible. It analyses and develops new methods of waste management to minimize the negative effects of pollution on the environment. Another component of this field is the filtration technology development that aims at reducing the toxic emission in the air. This discipline focuses not only on the environment, but also on protecting the health of the employees of the industrial environment. Environmental Engineers protect the public health by applying engineering principles to the environment and contributing to the sustainable development.Geoengineering is focuses in issues such as carbon dioxide reduction, global warming and solar radiation management, ocean fertilization, etc. It sets out to deliberately and systematically improve the environment on a large scale and enhance habitability. Applying engineering principles and methods, geoengineers work towards clean air, water and soil for the human society, but also for all living organisms and fight to remedy the pollution, degradation and destruction of natural habitats. Geoengineering can be regarded as Environmental Engineering with a broader scope and action.Both fields tackle problems like waste management, impact assessment and mitigation, water treatment, air quality improvement. Graduates of this discipline have a good understanding of environmental systems and technologies and are dedicated to improving Earth.

The transition towards renewable energy sources like sun, wind, biomass and geothermal energy is supported by a growing and increasingly important industry. Interdisciplinarity is the key word here. Economic, legal, social, technological and environmental issues all come together in one big challenge: implementing new concepts in a world that seems addicted to the old energy sources. New professionals need to understand the complexities of doing business in a vastly changing energy market. They must be capable of designing and modelling innovative business plans, as well as implementing them in real world situations.
