Students will increase their understanding of the properties and functions of water and ecosystems, learn how to assess the local and global environmental impact of human activities, and apply advanced methods, techniques and modelling tools to describe, quantify and solve environmental problems. The scope of the programme is international and interdisciplinary.
The Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology has no tracks and there is, in general, a large degree of freedom for the students to select courses within the programme, given that the specific course prerequisites are fulfilled.
The courses offered within the programme are based on a combination of theoretical and practical approaches, both in the field as well as in laboratory, using tools as GIS, different computer models and tools for decision support.
Our society has major challenges in managing a changing climate, developing and securing good water quality, developing systems for recycling materials and nutrients, and developing renewable and environmentally smart energy solutions.
The needs for environmental engineering expertise are, therefore, almost endless, and the labour market is very diverse. Students will be able to work privately and publicly – in environmental consultancies, with contractors, water- and wastewater companies or government agencies; internationally, nationally or locally.
There are also graduates from the programme who go on doctoral studies at KTH or other universities nationally and internationally.
Some examples of employers of programme graduates are SWECO, Stockholm Vatten, WSP, Swedish EPA, Tyréns, Geosigma, COWI, Vattenfall, and SIDA, as well as several international agencies.
