Nowadays, environmental protection and sustainability within the chemical processing and energy industries are of major concerns. In a near future, experts predict that the energy demand will drastically increase, especially because of the spectacular industrial and economic growth of the emerging countries. In such a context, meeting the energy needs of society without serious adverse impacts on humanity and the environment is a world challenge.
Whilst generating energy with minimal environmental impact falls within the broad scope of engineering, managing the demand for energy is in the realm of economics and social sciences. In most cases, these issues are interrelated and global solutions and strategies have to be found.
The original feature of the ME3 Master's programme is to combine Energy and Environmental Process Engineering with Management and Social Sciences. It aims at offering a well-balanced education to future engineers and managers having the adequate skills to solve environmental and energy issues through an integrated approach, combining technological development and innovations together with the consideration of human, social and economic constraints.
The ME3 program allows students to combine technical and engineering knowledge with a solid foundation in management, project planning, and social Sciences. The course content consists of 4 main components;

Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
The European joint Masters ME3 is offered to students who have the highest potential for graduate studies. To enter the programme, candidates must have either a Bachelor’s degree in Science or Engineering or a recognised equivalent diploma from an accredited institution (minimum 3 years full time study) in a scientific or technical discipline.
Preferred first degree fields are Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Process Engineering and similar subjects closely related to the objectives of the course. You may apply if you have a different background, but be aware that your chances of admission are likely to be lower.
No pre-assessment of your application can be done. It means that we cannot answer by email or phone to any question related to your chances of admission. Only full evaluation of your application file is done, once we receive it (either online or by postmail).
All complete application files are evaluated and the result is always communicated by direct email once the evaluation done. Be aware that due to high number of applications received, there may be some delay in the announcement of the result.
The ME3 programme has been selected by the European Commission as an Erasmus Mundus Master Course.
Erasmus Mundus Scholarships to study in the ME3 programme are awarded to the best applicants.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
