Master's Programme in Chemical Engineering and Water Treatment

In this programme, you may choose from two independent modules: Chemical and Process Engineering or Water Treatment.

The duration of the programme is two years. The increasing share of modern e-learning methods in our teaching enables you to carry out the second year of Water Treatment studies as flexible distance learning independent of place or time.

The programme covers many scientific and technological areas essential for human well-being, a clean environment and the sustainable use of natural resources.

In today's society, resources are becoming scarce and the environmental impact of manufacturing processes is a matter of growing concern. It is important to develop technology which is not harmful to the environment, to use natural resources rationally, and to minimise process waste.

Every day, two million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastewater is discharged into water bodies. Especially water treatment is inadequate in many parts of the world, and legislation concerning wastewater is constantly being tightened. Moreover, sustainability challenges us to reflect on water treatment in different ways.

Instead of focusing on end-of-pipe treatment for pollution prevention, we should shift towards optimal resource utilisation and enhanced water recycling. Therefore, the need for novel and sustainable materials and technologies for water treatment is obvious.
