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 Joint Master Degree in AquaCulture, Environment and Society (ACES) is specifically designed to give students an outstanding level of theoretical and practical skills, so that they can confidently respond to the uncertainties facing the aquaculture industy worldwide.

This programme focuses on the unique subject ‘Fossil and new-generation fuels’ combined with entrepreneurial skills and innovative thinking. Strong emphasis is placed on how to integrate chemical fuels with renewables to create high-efficiency sustainable power systems.
The Master in Geography and Spatial Planning (former "Master in Spatial Development and Analysis") provides insights into the analysis of the patterns of spatial development and spatial governance in Europe, with a strong emphasis on integrative approaches and sustainable development strategies.
Are you up to the challenge of finding innovative methods and sustainable solutions to the threats facing the environment? The Environmental Sciences Master programme at Wageningen University has its roots in the natural, technological and social sciences. Students will gain insight into the socio-economic causes and the characteristics of pollution and degradation of the natural environment, including the effects on human beings, the atmosphere, ecosystems and other organisms.
Materials Science and Engineering encompasses all natural and man-made materials – their extraction, synthesis, processing, properties, characterization, and development for technological applications. Advanced engineering activities that depend upon optimized materials include the medical device and healthcare industries, the energy industries, electronics and photonics, transportation, advanced batteries and fuel cells, and nanotechnology.
This master’s programme was specially designed to meet the challenges that arise due to substantial changes in the field of energy. Our goal is to turn bachelor’s degree holders into energy engineers who master not only the current energy systems and technologies but also those to come.
Graduate study in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering prepares students for leadership roles in practice, development, and research pertinent to environmental and urban problems. At the graduate level, students are expected to increase the depth of their academic training in their particular area of expertise, and to develop the capacity to collaborate with individuals from other disciplines. Because of its diversity of interests and association with other JHU departments, the department can offer a broad range of graduate programs based on the natural, social, and engineering sciences.
The Master of Property has been designed to provide relevant learning outcomes and flexibility by being delivered entirely online.
The Master's in Telecommunications Program offers students a unique opportunity to engage in cross-disciplinary coursework from both the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of the A. James Clark School of Engineering and the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. This extraordinary combination culminates in a degree that prepares students for the broad range of rigors and issues that encompass the dynamic telecommunications industry.
EDGE enables engineering professional, military members, and students worldwide to participate in courses, certificates, and degree programs from the UF College of Engineering. Engineers can earn a master’s degree at a time and place convenient to them through programs from UF EDGE. As an EDGE student, you view the same course lectures, complete the same assignments and exams as UF campus based engineering students.
This industry focused program will provide you with specialised project management skills designed for the built environment, as well as people management skills opening up opportunities for success.
