Is it your dream to work towards an environment where health is a key issue? Are you interested in solving the environmental challenges that we are already facing? And do you think it is fun to work with different issues in an interdisciplinary manner? The Environmental Engineering programme at Aalborg University offers you the opportunity to participate in the development of new processes and technology, which can form the base for sustainable energy production and resource management.
MASTER OF SCIENCE IN TECHNOLOGY
(DANISH TITLE: CAND.Scient.TECH.) (STARTING IN FEBRUARY)If you hold another qualifiying education than a BSc in Engineering, for instance a Bachelor in Biology, you can enroll in the Master of Science in Technology programme in Environmental Engineering.
The programme can also be studied as a Master of Science in Engineering. Applicants who hold a BSc in Engineering can apply for this programme.
About the programme
The programme is cross disciplinary, and you use your knowledge within chemistry, physics, biology, and microbiology to investigate and solve environmental challenges in cities, industry, agriculture and nature.Within Environmental Engineering, you can for instance work with energy from biomass and waste, biological air cleaning in industry and animal farming, methods for rapid detection of bacteria in drinking water, biological methods for assessment of water quality in rivers and lakes or improvement of indoor climate in buildings at contaminated soil sites.
During the Environmental Engineering programme, competences and tools that you will need to actively participate in the development of our society in a sustainable direction.
