The eNviro5Tech Nordic Masters program is in the subject area of Environmental Engineering and Technology. The program has two foci: (i) understanding and sustainable management of impacts on the environment caused by human activities, and (ii) the development of new technologies to address environmental challenges.
It addresses some of the most pressing current political issues such as climate change, sustainable generation of energy, management and renewal of aging urban infrastructure, provision of safe drinking water and contaminated land and waste management. Environmental Engineering is an interdisciplinary science, bridging all the sciences and placing them in a social, economic and legal context. Within the discipline, there are areas of specialization, or small subject areas.
Environmental Technologies and Green Engineering are amongst the fastest growing markets in the world, and there is increasing demand for innovative solutions and many new graduates. The eNviro5Tech joint MSc degree addresses this demand by pooling resources to create the most comprehensive degree in Environmental Engineering in the world. The eNviro5Tech MSc is offered by the Nordic Five Tech, a strategic alliance of the five strongest technical universities in the Nordic region, with partners in Denmark (DTU), Sweden (KTH, Chalmers University of Technology), Norway (NTNU) and Finland (Aalto University). The program involves a set of 5 predefined study tracks leading to double degrees in Environmental Engineering. The program strengthens capacities in established areas such as Urban Hydrology, Water Supply and Waste Water Management and offers a brand new focus, namely in Environmental Informatics.
