Water availability and quality is becoming an issue worldwide. Climate change and the pollution of water and the environment are global problems affecting our society. To satisfy our civilization demand for water and renewable energy resources while producing sustainable solutions for related environmental challenges, the society needs water & environmental specialists with sound technical education as offered in this study programme.
The programme is composed of a common core (a block of compulsory core courses providing a broad fundamental basis) and three elective specializations. A student chooses one of the following elective tracks:
Environmental Engineering and Science
Each specialization comprises specific compulsory courses further extending the knowledge of physical processes and engineering applications and skills for effective engineering design in the field of a selected specialization. The list of programme courses is complemented with a selection of elective courses of individual interest (courses from the other specializations). Furthermore, the programme contains a series of invited lectures, a track-based project and the MSc Thesis.
Students are given a great deal of freedom in shaping their study plan. Furthermore, they enjoy a possibility of close personal interaction with their teachers and supervisors. The individual approach offers frequent consultations and personal guidance particularly in executing the track-based project and the diploma project.
The programme includes training in high quality laboratories to support the interaction between theory and practice. The laboratory facilities can also be used in individual works on the track-based project and/or the diploma project. The laboratories are in possession of a broad variety of experimental models (including flumes) and measuring technology to satisfy topics in all three elective specializations.
Water & environmental engineers find employment opportunities and career prospects with profit- and non-profit employers such as:
The final graduation examination is composed of the defence of the MSc Thesis and an oral exam based on four thematic areas. Two areas are common for all three specializations of the study programme and the other two areas are specialization-specific. After graduation, the students can proceed with their studies in a doctoral study programme.
