The Graduate Programme in Environment Protection Engineering focuses on research and engineering activities which aim at mitigating the negative impacts of human activity on the environment. It is primarily addressed to the alumni of the undergraduate programme in environmental engineering or other undergraduate engineering programmes, such as civil, mechanical or chemical engineering.

Broad knowledge and the system approach skills are acquired, including environmental law and economy, impact analysis, risk analysis and decision making, mathematical modelling, environment quality assessment and management, etc. These are linked either to national or the EU perspectives. Programme participants broaden their background in environmental physics, chemistry and biology, familiarize with techniques of environmental data analysis and mathematical modelling, and develop practical skills in designing and governing environment protection measures. They receive training in a wide range of environmental technologies such as water and wastewater treatment technology, air pollution control, water and soil quality control, solid and hazardous waste management, environmental aspects of energy production and its use. In order to develop teamwork and collaborative skills, professional knowledge is supplemented by training in social communication.
The first and second semesters of the programme give in-depth knowledge in mathematics, physics and chemistry. Moreover, several specialised engineering courses cover specific topics within the field of environment protection engineering. The scientific and engineering courses are completed by social sciences topics. The third semester is mostly dedicated to work on the final project and preparation of a master thesis which should demonstrate acquired scientific and technical skills and understanding of environmental issues. 

Examples of modules:
• Computational Methods in Environmental Engineering • Environmental Physics • Monitoring of Environment • Reliability and Safety of Engineering Systems • Applied Climatology • Irrigation and Drainage • Geostatistics • Heat and Mass Transfer • Pro-ecological Technologies • Global Climate Change • Alternative Energy Sources • Introduction to Remote Sensing of Environment

Career opportunities:
At the Masters level, the programme in Environment Protection Engineering aims at research and engineering activities concerning the mitigating of negative impacts of human activity on the environment. Graduates receiving the Master of Science in Engineering degree will be able to develop their individual/ independent professional practices, carry out an environmental impact assessment, design and execute or supervise environment protection measures in companies, maintain monitoring networks and provide expertise to local and regional authorities for decision making.
