The Environmental Engineering programme at the University of Stavanger incorporates two specialisations:
- Offshore Environmental Technology
Students that want to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry can choose this specialisation. The philosophy of this programme is to combine courses in offshore oil and gas exploration, production technologies and environmental management. The programme is suited for students that are interested in practical technological and administrative competences for sound environmental management in the offshore industries.
- Water Science and Technology
The specialisation in Water Science and Technology is offered to students who want to focus on aquatic chemistry and ecology, and technologies for water and wastewater treatment. Being more natural science and research based, the programme provides students with fundamental and advanced competances in aquatic chemistry, environmental biotechnology and water process engineering.
With MSc in Environmental Engineering at University of Stavanger, graduates will be able to suggest, design and operate adequate environmental process technologies based on profound understanding of recipient aquatic system, in both offshore and onshore companies.
