Degree structure and studies

The Master's Programme in Water Technology is a two-year, flexible, blended learning programme. Most of the courses in this programme are available online, which gives working professionals and students the flexibility to gain expertise from a distance.

Compulsory contact teaching days include seminars and laboratory work on the Lappeenranta campus.

The programme leads to the degree of Master of Science in Technology, M.Sc. (Tech.), which is 120 ECTS credits.

The programme includes core, specialisation, minor and elective studies.

Core studies include an introduction course to M.Sc. studies and a course on research methodology.

Specialisation studies include comprehensive courses about conventional and advanced water treatment technologies, analytics, sustainable water use, and project work.

The Master's thesis, 30 ECTS credits, are a part of specialisation studies. The thesis is an advanced research project, which requires approximately six months of full-time work. Students complete it during their fourth semester.

Minor studies (if any, depending on the scope of the specialisation studies) and elective studies can be freely chosen by the student. Minor subjects suitable for distance learning are also available.
