Environmental Engineering (EE) program gives you a wide approach to environmental field as profession. You will learn causes, consequences and prevention of environmental problems. To safeguard good living environment, internationally competent professionals of environmental technology and management are needed.
The growing need to safeguard clean environment needs more and more environmental technology and management experts. The environmental engineering field is expanding and developing rapidly around the world.
In the program the engineering knowledge and management skills are integrated as this gives the best conditions to get employed in the companies.
Furthermore, the environmental engineering is expanding to the new sectors e.g. event management, supply chain management and, as a horizontal operation, environmental engineering is more and more combined with ICT applications, material technology and process and energy technologies.
The programme consists of two main topics:
Both topics are elementary parts of studies.
During your studies you will get familiar with e.g.:
The study language is English. Teaching, assignments, exams and thesis are conducted in English.
In Finland clean technologies (cleantech) has been chosen as a new growing business area in the development policies of the ministry of Trade and Industry. Amount of cleantech start-up companies and investments into them have remarkably increased during the last years. All these development trends have been taken into the consideration in the conduction of EE studies.
The new BYOD policy demands students bring their own devices, i.e. laptops, to campus.Read more.
BRIDGE project is a new unique way of collaboration between South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (Xamk), and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in terms of building a new education path for the students. Read more.
The environmental field has traditionally been focused on the administration and legislation, but research, development and innovation (RDI), business, advisory, consultation and conservation have become as an important part of it.
In Finland clean technologies (cleantech) has become a priority area of the national economic strategy
Furthermore, the demand for environmental knowledge and know-how has been increasing in new areas like event management and production and management of supply chains.
After graduation you can work in different types of environmental research, supervising, planning and management duties. The employers will be private companies, development agencies, foundations and associations as well as research and development organisations.
Finland is a republic and member of the European Union (EU)
