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.
Graduates of ‘Environmental Science and Technology’ become active in diverse sectors and take on a wide variety of professional duties. They become – among others – entrepreneurs, policymakers, science advisors, technology consultants, R&D specialists in industry, researchers, or teachers at higher education institutions.
The job market in environmental science and technology is in high demand for people that are broadly trained in all aspects of environmental science and technology. There is also an increasing demand for creative and impactful problem-solvers with advanced knowledge and skills in emerging and globally pressing environmental topics, such as those offered in the majors: chemicals management, resource recovery, urban environmental engineering, developing economies, and marine systems.
