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.

Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management M.Sc. Sustainable and Innovative Natural Resource Management
  • Sep 2016
  • EEA € 6,000 per year
  • International € 12,000 per year
  • 24 months

The increasing demand for raw materials, their price volatility, the production concentration and the market distortions imposed by some countries, confront Europe and other world regions with a number of challenges along the entire value chain. To tackle this supply risk challenge and to deal with environmental problems arising from too large emissions of waste (such as CO2), technological innovation is required with respect to exploration of new resources and sustainable primary mining, sustainable use of resources in specific products and production processes (e.g. substitution of critical metals in materials), prevention of waste generation, valorisation of secondary (alternative) resources and recovery/recycling of resources from end-of-life products.
