Key facts

Ghent University's Environmental Science and Technology programme will learn you to create a healthier living environment for all, whilst avoiding pollution, preserving our ecosystems, and sustainably using and recovering resources. You will also learn to tackle environmental issues from local to global scale, both in developed and developing economies, and from oceans to megacities, duly accounting for the driving forces of global climate change.

The first year provides a broad education in all core disciplines of environmental science and technology. The entire second year allows you to fully specialise (including your master dissertation research) in one of five environmental topics of international concern (majors), all of which are supported by top-level UGent research. The programme offers training to an international audience and is entirely taught in English. The study programme can be attended by students from across the globe that are interested in solving environmental problems, regardless of whether they have the ambition to improve quality of life in their own city or country or in another continent. This international dimension enables frequent contacts and common activities with fellow students from various backgrounds and cultures, thus also enhancing the students’ social skills.
