Environmental Technology

Institute of Mathematics and Natural Sciences offers two postgraduate engineering specializations in environmental technology: Offshore Environmental Engineering, and Water Science and Technology.


Students that want to pursue a career in the oil and gas industry, or among the many offshore related service and research companies, are offered a Master of Science in Offshore Environmental Engineering. This programme combines courses in offshore oil and gas exploration, production technologies and environmental management and is suited for students that are interested in practical technological and administrative competences for sound environmental management in the offshore industries. Successful candidates will qualify for key positions in environmental engineering and management.

Our Master of Science in Water Science and Technology is suited for students that want to focus on aquatic chemistry and ecology, and technologies for water and wastewater treatment. Being more natural science and research based, the programme provides students with fundamental and advanced competences in aquatic chemistry, environmental biotechnology and water process engineering. Successful candidates qualify for positions in governmental and private research institutions, public and private environmental management and technical consultants, and as environmental engineers within the industry. Both specializations are based on taught courses that include compulsory and elective subjects.
