About

The Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology equips students with interdisciplinary tools to solve future environmental problems and prepares for careers as environmental engineers.

Overview

In this Environmental Engineering and Sustainable Infrastructure programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology you will gain knowledge 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 and modelling tools to define and solve environmental problems.

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.

Career

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.
