About

Protect bodies of water, reduce harmful emissions and develop environmentally friendly production processes. The master degree in Environmental Technologies is offered by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. 

Overview

Students acquire a comprehensive and very practical education in Environmental Technologies. Modules taught deal with the economic and environmental aspects of sustainable production, the concept of circular economy, the analysis of material and mass flow as well as technologies for resource recovery. 

Two further modules address the management of the resource water and the treatment of water and of wastewater. This master degree is offered by the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland. Students are also taught in environmental risk assessment, where the fate and effects of environmental pollutants are addressed. Two additional modules are focused on environmental remediation: pollutants in contaminated sites have to be managed, monitored and eventually be remediated by physico—chemical or biological techniques.

Career Development 

  • Students complete their studies with an eight month long master’s thesis that is usually performed together with an industrial partner and often has an international context. 
  • Alumni have a thorough practical and theoretical education enabling them to develop, plan, apply and manage “clean” technologies in the industry, in consulting or the public sector.
