Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Agriculture and environment
Course summary You will learn to apply and develop environmental technologies, with a strong focus on multidisciplinary and problem-based technology development.
Course description The curriculum is based on a common and integrated didactical sequence of (1) basic courses to introduce important concepts and to bring students to a same level, (2) advanced courses that familiarize students with environmental technology and (3) specialised courses that treat specific technologies (processes, design, operation,...) and applications (treatment of wastewater and waste gas, soil remediation, resource recovery engineering,...). The first semester, organised at UCTP, mainly focuses on acquiring background knowledge as introduction to the domain of environmental technology. Two transferable skills courses are proposed as red thread over the first year (Elective Project, and Scientific and Communication skills for Engineers). In the second semester at IHE Delft, advanced and specialised wastewater treatment technologies courses are taught. In the third semester, specialised Environmental Technology and Engineering courses are taught at Ghent University. Students choose their specialisation by selecting elective courses. Thesis research is conducted at one of the institutes in the fourth semester, or in cooperation with associated partners from all over the world.
