Content of studies

Are you interested in our living environment and environmental safety, clean technologies for improving environmental conditions and sustainable development?

Studies in Environmental engineering give you a wide approach to environmental field.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 programme 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.

During your studies you can get familiar with e.g.:

  • environmental protection
  • environmental safety
  • measuring and monitoring techniques
  • environmental sampling
  • environmental management

The language of instruction is English.
