Programme Outline for Environmental Engineering

The extent of the Master's Programme in Environmental Engineering (nick-named BEE) with its currently two study options (majors) "Energy Systems and Cleaner Production" and "Water Engineering" available in English, is 120 ECTS = 2 academic study years = 4 academic terms. The curricula of the two BEE study options (ESCP; WE) consist of 4 modules: a Basic, an Advanced, a Supplementary Module, and a Master's Thesis Module. See the link below for details and examples of the courses included (Class BEE'17 & Class BEE'18):

The active BEE studies begin on September (with an Orientation period), on the autumn term of the 1st study year mainly with introductory Basic Module courses. This module forms the grounds for the programme learning outcomes. During the 1st spring term and the 2nd year autumn term, the Advanced and Supplementary Module courses will provide further professional basis for the student's majoring object, his/her study option. In addition, professional practical training will be carried out during the summer months between the 1st and 2nd study years, e.g. in a university reseach unit or in real life jobs, which the students will find in the open labor markets. On the 3rd term (autumn term of the 2nd study year), the continued Advanced/Supplementary Module courses dig deeper into the area of the chosen study option.

Finally, mainly during the 4th term (2nd spring), the Master's Thesis project will give the student a good touch for the future professional career. Master's Thesis project is an independent research project completed in the final stage of the major subject studies. It includes, e.g., literature searches, collection of research materials, their analysis, and writing of thesis, etc. The Master's Thesis project will also include writing a Maturity Test. By the Master's Thesis and the Maturity Test, the student shows that he/she can master research methods, usage of source materials, and scientific writing in her/his field. The subject of the thesis project may vary within different areas of environmental and/or process engineering.
