Master of Engineering (M.Eng.)

Environmental engineering and modeling

The primary goal of this Master’s program is to develop forward-thinking strategies and solutions.

In their studies, students will deal with questions related to sustainability, conservation and development of protected resources like water, soil, and air, with using information technology to collect and process environmental data, and with simulating environmental and process-specific procedures.


Graduates may apply for senior civil service positions.

  • Engineering and planning offices
  • Municipal administrations
  • Administrations
  • Associations
  • Industry
  • Consulting companies
