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.
Masters are able to work in state environmental protection institutions, research institutes, universities, colleges, vocational schools, industrial and transport companies, companies of environmental consultancy.
The University of Edinburgh is home to the first Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Masters programme in the UK. It has two streams, designed to be suitable for students with differing career aims and backgrounds.
Focus on innovative technology for sustainable production of food and renewable resources; interaction between technology, plants, animals, the environment and society plays a central role.
The program provides students with scientific, technological and legal training in environmental policy and management. Students in this program often specialize in environmental management or in developing sustainable environmental policy solutions.
MSc Clean Fossil and Alternative Fuels Energy gives engineering students cutting-edge knowledge plus the ability to develop entrepreneurial skills and innovative thinking in the fossil-based power industry and chemical fuels and/or renewable resources fields – all in an international environment with close industrial connections.
The GIMA programme does not solely cover the advanced use of GIS, but also management styles and the management of geoinformation and spatial data infrastructures in organisations.

The MSc in Exploration Geophysics has been running for over 35 years. It provides students with a broad range of practical skills underpinned by a theoretical understanding that will equip them to become professionals in their chosen field. Demand for graduates remains high, with virtually all graduates finding employment within geophysics or related areas. Various scholarships are available.
Environmental issues have become increasingly important in the management of both private and public organizations. Today, companies face increasing demands from various stakeholders with regards to the environmental performance of their products and processes.
This Erasmus Mundus (MESPOM) program prepares students to identify and implement solutions for complex environmental challenges, especially in an international context. Students also develop research, communication and other professional skills to advance their career objectives. The program is operated by CEU, Lund University (Sweden), the University of Manchester (UK), the University of the Aegean (Greece), the University of Saskatchewan (Canada), and the Monterey Institute for International Studies (US). Graduates are awarded MSc degrees by all European partners.
Are you a property manager, property developer or interested in pursuing a career in property investment? Due to the increasing demand for experienced and qualified professionals within the property field, the University of Newcastle's School of Architecture and Built Environment has developed this practical and contemporary program to meet the current and anticipated needs of the industry.
The 21st century calls for graduates with an interdisciplinary training and problem-solving competence in the fields of ecology, energy, resources etc. Process engineering, for example, with such fields as environmental- and energy engineering, is now seen as one of the key disciplines. It deals with the engineering required for a wide range of processes and the transformation of materials, in which raw materials are converted in a series of unit operations into salable intermediate and final products.
The programme focuses on the scientific analysis of the physical, environmental, technical and socio-economic aspects of water management and their mutual interactions.
