Master's  Programme in Water Treatment Technology

Every day 2 million tons of sewage and industrial and agricultural wastewater is discharged into the water bodies. Especially, water treatment is inadequate in many parts of the world and legislations concerning the wastewaters are constantly tighten.

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. On this basis it is obvious that novel and sustainable materials and technologies for water treatment are needed.

In this Master's programme you will learn how waters are purified not only efficiently but also in a sustainable and economical manner. You will obtain knowledge and skills that can be used to solve water related challenges in the future. You will get competencies to act as professional in the rapidly developing, multidisciplinary area of water and the environment, or to continue your studies in doctoral programmes. You will also develop team working skills.

Teaching and research are carried out in close cooperation with industry, other universities and research institutions. In the programme you will be provided with extensive knowledge in different fields of the water sector.
