Program content

The eNviro5Tech program is in the subject area of environmental engineering and technology. The program has two focuses: understanding and sustainable management of impacts on the environment caused by human activities and the development of new technologies to address environmental challenges.

eNviro5Tech 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, offered through focused subject areas. Your studies will include lectures, seminars and a large amount of project work. In many courses, the preferred learning approach is problem-based learning (PBL), which is characterized by the usage of real-life situations and group work as a starting point for learning and giving students the responsibility for obtaining knowledge.

Tuition fees

The full tuition price for non-EU/EEA citizens is €15000 per year

Scholarships & funding

Several scholarship options are available. Please check the university website for more information.


Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with a Master of Science (Technology) degree.
