Study programme

The eNviro5Tech Nordic Master´s program is in the subject area of Environmental Engineering and Technology. The program has two foci: (i) understanding and sustainable management of impacts on the environment caused by human activities and (ii) the development of new technologies to address environmental challenges.

It addresses some of the most pressing current political issues such as climate change, sustainable generation of energy, management and renewal of aging urban infrastructure, provision of safe drinking water and contaminated land and waste management. Environmental Engineering is an interdisciplinary science, bridging all the sciences and placing them in a social, economic and legal context.

Within the discipline, there are areas of specialization, or small subject areas. Your education will include lectures, seminars and a large amount of project work. In many courses the learning approach is problem-based learning (PBL), which is characterized by using real life situations and group work as a starting point for learning, and the students' own responsibility for obtaining knowledge.
